MOSCOW, December 11. /ITAR-TASS/. Israeli authorities have extradited to Russia a suspected rapist. The suspect, identified as Merabi Biniaurishvili, is accused of involvement in gang rape and murder threats against the victim.
The criminal case against Biniaurishvil was opened in May 2005. In September 2007, the Borisoglebsky district court of the Voronezh region sanctioned his arrest in absentia, as the defendant had failed to appear in court, and in October 2008, he was put on the Interpol wanted list.
In July 2009, the Russian Prosecutor General's Office, after receiving information about the suspect's whereabouts, asked Israel to extradite him. In February 2012, he was detained in Israel.
It is the fifth extradition of suspects from Israel to Russia. The first took place in April 2008, when Israel extradited Alexander Levin, accused of robbery and murder of the Kovalenko couple in the Belgorod region in January 2001. In May 2010, Israel extradited to Russia Shumshum Shubayev, who had Russian and Israeli dual citizenship. Shubayev was accused of robbery and murder in Kislovodsk in August 1999.
In January, 2012, Israel extradited a suspected child molester, while in July 2013, Israel extradited a Tula region residents who had been wanted for seven years for beating his wife in a drunken row.
