Berlin - The owner of the heavily used YouPorn and Pornhub websites has been extradited to Germany after being arrested in Belgium on suspicion of tax evasion.

Fabian Thylmann, a German who lives in Belgium, was extradited on Thursday. Alf Willwacher, a spokesman for Cologne prosecutors, said Friday that Thylmann didn't contest extradition. It wasn't clear whether he has responded to the accusations against him.

Thylmann was arrested last week on a German warrant, and several properties including his home were searched. Prosecutors have declined to give details of the case against him.

Thylmann's company, Manwin, owns several sites including YouPorn and Pornhub which, according to Internet information company Alexa, are among the most popular websites on the planet. Manwin has offices in Luxembourg, Britain, Germany, Canada, Cyprus and the United States. - Sapa-AP
