French ‘Serial Striker’ ready for extradition

A French kick-boxer has been sent to provisional detention at the Ministry of Interior while he awaits extradition for a 2004 drug conviction in French courts.
Phnom Penh Municipal Court deputy prosecutor Meas Chanpiseth said yesterday that David Minetti, 34, was arrested at his home in Chamkarmon district’s Tuol Svay Prey II commune on Thursday following an arrest warrant issued the same day. A French court sent a warrant for Minetti’s arrest to the Ministry of Justice on May 12. Meas Chanpiseth said he did not know when Minetti would be extradited. Known as the “Serial Striker”, Minetti is the director of the martial arts gym K1 Fitness & Fight Factory, with branches in Tuol Svay Prey II commune, Ho Chi Minh City and Montpellier, Minetti’s home. Minetti and his attorney could not be reached for comment.
