MOSCOW, January 05, 0:54 /ITAR-TASS/. A Cambodian court will rule on the extradition of Russian businessman Sergey Polonsky in Russia on January 12, a source familiarised with the situation in the trial told Itar-Tass.
“The investigation panel of the Phom Pehn criminal court will rule on the extradition of Polonsky on January 12,” the source said.
A lawyer of the Russian business tycoon Aleksander Karabanov was barred from a flight to Cambodia, where he should have given legal assistance to his client. Meanwhile, the lawyer was handed in a summons to turn up in the Russian law enforcement agencies to testify on the situation over Polonsky’s extradition to Russia, a source at the Moscow airport Sheremetyevo said.
On June 14, the investigation department of the Russian Interior Ministry accused in absentia Sergey Polonsky of fraud in the construction of the residential district “Kutuzovskaya Mile”. More than 80 people were found as injured parties in the fraud case. The detectives found that the company controlled by Polonsky had received around 5.7 billion roubles ($174.5 million) from its depositors, but then froze up the construction project, breaking the liabilities under the contracts. After that the company’s top management has initiated deliberate bankruptcy and shutdown of the company.
Meanwhile, the Cambodian law enforcement agencies are investigating a criminal case against Polonsky for the illegal deprivation of freedom of the sailors and the captain of a ship, which the Russian business tycoon owned. The Cambodian authorities have arrested Polonsky at the end of 2012 within the criminal case, but he was released on bail in April 2013.
