MOSCOW, February 15 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia has extradited to Belgium an Armenian citizen accused of murder on the territory of that European country, a source in Interpol’s National Central Bureau at the Interior Ministry of Russia told ltar-Tass on Wednesday.
“Staffers of Interpol’s National Central Bureau at the Interior Ministry of Russia effected on Wednesday extradition to Belgium of Armenian citizen Tigran Arutyunyan, aged 43,” said the source.
Arutyunyan was put on the international wanted list on the initiative of Belgian law enforcers in 2010. He is accused of committing a murder on Belgian territory in 2000, said the source.
Arutyunyan was detained by officers of the Volgograd department of international police in April 2011.
It was noted in the department that the accused has a vast criminal history. Back in 2002 Arutyunyan was extradited to Russia from Germany and was convicted by the Volgograd court for a murder committed in Volgograd in 1996.
