Former chief executive of Comverse Technology Jacob Alexander can relax until April, when the fugitive will be required to appear in an African court to determine whether he should be extradited to the United States to face fraud charges related to the operation of tech vendor Comverse.

Alexander and his family have settled in a home he purchased on a golf course in Namibia. In recent days two former Comverse executives have pleaded guilty in the case in Federal Court in Brooklyn, and U.S. law enforcement authorities have stepped up their efforts to bring Alexander back to the United States.

Alexander has been charged with illegally dating Comverse stock options. He has denied the charges.
