MOSCOW, November 8 (Itar-Tass) - Serbia extradited Ilya Gorychev to Russia on November 8. He is charged with organizing a gang that murdered lawyer Stanislav Markelov, two leaders of the Antifa movement and the execution of two migrants, Vladimir Markin, a spokesman for the Russian Investigation Committee, told Itar-Tass on Friday.
He said that the main investigative department of the Russian Investigation Committee is investigating a criminal case against participants in a criminal gang and an extremist community calling itself the Militant Organisation of Russian Nationalists (BORN).
Investigators ruled that Goryachev should face trial on charges of organization of an extremist community, the creation of a gang, murder and illegal trade in arms, Markin went on to say. “Investigators are accusing Goryachev of murdering lawyer Stanislav Markelov, the two leaders of the anti-fascist movement, Fyodor Filatov and Ilya Dzhaparidze as well as of migrants Rasul Khalilov and Salakhedin Azizov,” Markin said.
The spokesman for the Russian Investigation Committee said that the aforesaid crimes had been motivated by ideological convictions, ethnic hatred and hostility.
“After killing Azizov, members of the Militant Organisation of Russian Nationalists (BORN) separated the head from his body and threw it up to the administration of one of Moscow’s district with a note containing demands to the authorities to change the migration policy,” Markin went on to say.
He clarified that investigators had not confirmed Goryachev’s personal complicity to the murder of Judge Eduard Goryachev. However, they established the complicity of other members of Goryachev’s gang to his death. The Russian Federal Security rendered assistance to the investigators.
Goryachev was put on the international wanted list and arrested in absentia at the request of investigators who confirmed their intention to Interpol to demand Goryachev’s extradition if he was detained in the territory of a foreign state.
Goryachev was detained in Serbia in May at the request of the Russian Prosecutor General’s Office. Late in July, the High Court in Belgrade sanctioned his extradition to Russia. However, Goryachev’s lawyers filed an appeal. The Serbian Court of Appeals took the side of the Russian authorities who demanded Goryachev’s extradition. The deportation could not take place without permission from the Serbian Justice Ministry, which finally gave its approval.
