MOSCOW, February 22 (Itar-Tass) — Israeli authorities have extradited a Russian citizen Pavel Yeryomenko, whom Moscow placed on an international wanted list, the press service of the Prosecutor General’s Office said.
“At the request from the Prosecutor General’s Office, Israel is extraditing Pavel Yeryomenko today,” a spokesman said. “The man is charged with lambasting, violent actions of sexual nature, and a failure to perform duties related to the upbringing of underage individuals.”
A criminal case against Yeryormenko was instituted in 2005 and is being prosecuted by the Investigations Committee in the Far-Eastern city of Magadan.
The man was placed on Russia’s federal wanted list in May 2005 and on the international list, in June 2008. His whereabouts were established also in June 2008.
The Prosecutor General’s Office sent an extradition request to the Israeli Justice Ministry in June 2008. The Israeli authorities entertained it January 18, 2012.
Yeryomenko is accused of “regular violent actions of sexual nature against his underage step daughter born in 1993. He indulged in the criminal activity from 1999 through 2004.
He is the third individual Israel turns over to Russia upon an extradition request over the past four years.
The first man, a Russian citizen Alexander Levin, who was charged with assaults and murder, was extradited in April 2008. The second man, a dual Russian and Israeli citizen Shumshum Shubayev was extradited in May 2010.
