Crawford Alleged Extortionist Can't be Extradited

11/18/2009 4:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Crawford Alleged Extortionist Can't be ExtraditedCindy Crawford's alleged extortionist cannot be extradited to the U.S., but he's not out of the woods.

TMZ did some checking and found Edis Kayalar, who turned himself in to German police Monday night, cannot be shipped back to the U.S. for allegedly demanding $100,000 from Cindy and hubby Rande Gerber. Germany does not have an extradition treaty with the U.S.

So, you ask, why did Kayalar turn himself in? We're told in November, after Kayalar was deported to Germany, he was sending emails to Gerber asking for money that could be transferred into a German bank account. That, German authorities tell us, is a violation of German extortion law.

Kayalar allegedly stole a photo from Cindy's former nanny -- a photo that shows her 7-year-old daughter tied up to a chair and gagged. The nanny says she took the photo as a joke.

Kayalar has been denied bail, because the German judge thinks he's a flight risk.

STFU TMZ YOU ARE IDIOTS    

Ok, this guy is not as sick as the nanny to me. I don't get it. What is up with the nanny...why is she not getting in trouble. You don't tie a kid to the chair.....This kid was exposing her, and trying to get money too, but at least he let someone in on how f'ed up this nanny was, not saying he's a good guy, but still. Just how i look at it, there's a good side of what he did. So i just think TMZ should focus more on the nanny, and what her idea of a joke is. Where's her ugly mug?????

The whole story the nanny spouted just doesn't make sense..... it sounds suspiciously like a photo that could be used in a kidnapping if you ask me. I agree that the nanny needs to be seriously question by the police.

TMZ, there most certainly is an extradition treaty between Germany and the USA:

Maybe what you meant, TMZ, is that this particular crime is not on the list of extraditable offenses pursuant to that treaty (which may or may not even be the case). C'mon, Harvey, pay attention!
