Victor Bout is O.K. in Thai prison
The Russian businessman Victor Bout, currently held in a Thai prison, is said to be O.K. He has had his prison conditions improved, says an official of the Russian embassy in Thailand.
He now has an electric fan, and is allowed to take a one-hour walk twice a day. The Thai authorities have put off the extradition of the Russian to the United States, which holds him responsible for illegal arms trade.
Bangkok says it will first examine the charges that the US has brought against Bout. The next court session has been set for October 4th. Moscow claims that the Thai court caved in under external pressure and made an illegal decision.
