MOSCOW, January 26 (Itar-Tass) —— in 2011, Moscow police detained 130 people at railway stations and airports who were wanted by law enforcement agencies in other countries.
Most of the detainees were citizens of Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Ukraine, and Belarus, a spokesman for the Moscow Inter-Regional Transport Prosecutor’s Office told Itar-Tass on Wednesday, January 25.
The detained persons were most often wanted for thefts, fraud, illegal drug trafficking, murders and attempted murders, grave harm to people’s health, and assaults.
Prosecutors conducted a thorough investigation with regard to each of them for their potential extradition.
“Special attention was paid to possible persecution for political reasons, which makes extradition impossible,” the spokesman said.
Seventy-three detainees were extradited to the countries that had initiated the search for them; 29 were released, and some of them faced administrative penalties for breach of migration legislation.
