McAfee's extradition to the U.S. was approved by Spain's National Court this Wednesday.

The late tech mogul was arrested in Barcelona in October 2020 on tax evasion charges.

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission also sued McAfee for allegedly being paid to promote "worthless" initial coin offerings (ICO) on social media.    

U.Today offers heartfelt condolences to McAfee’s family.
