Lawyers for Ancaster man accused in Yahoo hack back in court today
Lawyers for a Canadian man accused in a massive hack of Yahoo emails will be in an Ontario court today to fight a judge's decision to deny their client bail.
Karim Baratov is appealing an April ruling by Ontario Superior Court Justice Alan Whitten, who said the 22-year-old was too much of a flight risk to be released on bail.
The judge also said Baratov's parents would not make suitable supervisors because they never questioned his growing wealth or his business activities while he was living with them.
Baratov was arrested in March under the Extradition Act after U.S. authorities indicted him and three others -- two of them allegedly officers of Russia's Federal Security Service -- for computer hacking, economic espionage and other crimes.
