MOSCOW, February 17. /ITAR-TASS/. Former Kyrgyz President Askar Akayev’s son-in-law Adil Toiganbayev who was detained in Moscow on Saturday, February 15, has been released, his lawyer Nikolai Polozov said.
“The investigator made the decision to release my defendant as Russia has no claims against him,” the lawyer told ITAR-TASS on Monday, February 17.
Toiganbayev’s car was stopped by road police. After running a check on the driver, police found out that he had been wanted by Interpol since 2005 on charges of fraud, embezzlement and tax evasion brought against him in Kyrgyzstan.
However, Polozov said his defendant could not be extradited to Kyrgyzstan because he was a citizen of another country — Kazakhstan.
This is not the first time Toiganbayev was detained. He was earlier detained at one of Moscow’s airports for 48 hours and then released.
Toiganbayev intends to stay in Russia for the time being.
