Hungarian court rejects Croatia's extradition request in bribery case of MOL oil company chief

A Budapest court has rejected a European arrest warrant issued by Croatia for the head of Hungary's main oil company, who is wanted for his alleged involvement in a bribery case.
Hungarian prosecutors said Monday the warrant and the extradition request were rejected by the court because their investigation did not find evidence of the charges made against Hernadi in Croatia.
Hernadi and MOL deny the allegations. Sanader is serving a 10-year prison sentence since being found guilty last year of accepting a 5 million-euro bribe from MOL.
