Whistleblowing means nothing anymore

A hacker, who so far have revealed plenty of irregularities and corruption in football, is going to be extradited to his native country: Portugal. Living in Budapest from 2015, Rui Pinto has hacked millions of documents revealing dirty businesses in the sport. The main source of 'Football leaks' was arrested on 16 January in Hungary, while last Tuesday the court confirmed that is going to be returned to Portugal who is accusing him for 'theft of data from some institutions, including the state itself, and attempt of blackmail of investment fund Maltese Doyen'. After an rejected appeal this Thursday, his lawyer said that the 30-year-old is going to be delivered to his native country within 10 days.
