MOSCOW, January 12, 13:01 /ITAR-TASS/. A court session in Cambodia, Southeast Asia, over extradition of Russian business tycoon Sergey Polonsky to Russia was delayed indefinitely, Polonsky’s lawyer Alexander Karabanov told Itar-Tass on Sunday.
It was earlier reported that a trial over Polonsky’s extradition could be held on Sunday.
“A court session was delayed to an indefinite date, it may take place next week,” Karabanov said.
In his words, Polonsky is still being kept at the Cambodian detention centre “The terms of keeping there can be called good. Sergey goes in for sports, reads books and waits for a court verdict,” the lawyer 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” in Moscow. 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 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.
