Aydin Coban, 42, was sentenced to 10 years and 242 days in prison in 2017 for scamming and blackmailing dozens of gay girls and boys, a long list of 34 names Amanda Todd made part.
The man had forced his victims to perform sexual acts in front of their webcam. He forced them to do it again by threatening to post his images on pornographic sites or send them to relatives.
Amanda Todd, from Port Coquitlam, British Columbia, took her own life after sharing her story in a video she posted to YouTube. She was only 15 at the time. Shortly before her death, Amanda Todd was experiencing bullying at her school.
Aydin Coban’s extradition to Canada was decided upon during the latter’s judgment in March 2017. He was charged in Canada in 2014.
Last March, Aydin Coban’s lawyer said that his client was “anxious” to go to Canada in order to “clear” his name. The culprit still denies having taken the actions that led to his conviction.
Information of his arrival in the country has been confirmed by the British Columbia Ministry of Justice. He will appear in court on February 12 in New Westminster for a pre-trial session.
