Back in May 2010, Peter Alfred-Adekeye, the founder of Multiven, a company that specializes in IP network infrastructure, was arrested in Vancouver on 97 separate counts of deliberately accessing a protected computer system without authorization for commercial advantage.
Peter Alfred-Adekeye was released on bail 28 days after his arrest, but was forbidden from leaving Canada. This has prompted numerous difficulties for both Alfred-Adekeye and Multiven since the former lives in Zurich, Switzerland and the later is based in Palo Alto, California.
Deka Yussuf, the executive vice president of Multiven executive, added to the controversy when she claimed that Cisco Systems orchestrated the arrest in order to force Multiven to settle its antitrust lawsuits against Cisco. She also noted that the case had been stalled for ten months because the U.S. attorney’s office could not present sufficient evidence to extradite Alfred-Adekeye.
The accusation prompted Cisco to release a short written statement about the matter. It read, “This is an absurd claim from Multiven. This case is a matter between US and Canadian governmental authorities. We understand that the genesis of the extradition request was an arrest warrant issued by a U.S. judge, which was based on a criminal complaint returned by a Secret Service Special Agent.”
