An Australian man on Monday will not fight Australia’s bid to extradite him from Thailand to Victoria over the theft of a $1 million ring, his lawyer says.

George Georgio, 30, from Northcote in Victoria, is due to appear in a Bangkok criminal court on Monday after he was arrested at Thailand’s seaside resort of Pattaya in October 2009 on the request of the Australian Attorney-General’s Department.

The department said Australian authorities wanted to prosecute Georgio on theft and damage-related offences over the alleged theft of a $1 million ring in March 2009.

Australian police say that in late March 2009, a man dressed all in black, including a beanie, smashed the display window at the Hardy Brothers Jewellers in Collins Street, Melbourne.
