NEW YORK, May 4. /TASS/. Russian diplomats have filed a query with the U.S. authorities on details of detention and death of the Russian citizen Igor Zyazin that was confirmed earlier on Tuesday by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Service (ICE), the press attach·of the Russian Consulate General in San Francisco, Maxim Goncharov told TASS.
"We’ve asked the U.S. authorities to give us copies of the person’s documents and the data on the causes and circumstances of his detention and death," he said.
Earlier on Tuesday, ICE confirmed the death of the Russian national Igor Zyazin, who had been detained earlier on the U.S.-Mexican border while trying to get to the U.S.
Zyazin, 46 at the time of his death, died on Sunday night while paramedics were transporting him from the Otay detention facility in San Diego to hospital. Prior to that prison officers and medics had found him unresponsive.
Zyazin was handed to ICE and taken to custody on April 24 after an attempt to get to the U.S. via the San Ysidro border crossing station where he showed his Russian passport to the officials who established later the fact of his previous deportation from the U.S. in 2009.
While in custody, he awaited an interview with an official from the Citizenship and Immigration Services in order to map out further steps in this case.
ICE also said Zyazin’s scanning through databanks showed he had no sentences for criminal offenses in the U.S.
At the time of reporting, there was no clarity either on the causes of his prior extradition or the character of the disease he had died from.
