BANGKOK, August 16 (RIA Novosti) An appeals court in Thailand will make its final ruling August 20 on the extradition of Russian businessman Viktor Bout to the United States on alleged charges of arms trafficking, Bout’s lawyer said on Monday.

Former Russian army officer Viktor Bout, 44, remains in custody in a Thai jail after the Bangkok Criminal Court refused last August to extradite him to the United States, where he is facing four terrorism-related charges and a possible life sentence.
