MOSCOW, July 06. /ITAR-TASS/. A Russian national wanted in Russia for the murder of policemen has been extradited from Slovakia, the press service of Russia’s National Interpol Bureau said on Sunday.
Anzor Chentiyev, is charged with the murder of riot policemen in the city of Grozny in the summer of 2001. Apart from that, according to the Russian Prosecutor General’s Office, he is accused of brigandage, armed robbery, home invasion and stealing of firearms.
In November 2005, Chentiyev was put on Russia’s federal wanted list, and on the international wanted list in April 2006. He was detained shortly after in Slovakia, where he asked for a refugee status. The Slovak authorities turned down his appeal, the Prosecutor General’s Office said. Trying to evade extradition, Chentiyev filed a complaint with the European Court of Human Rights challenging a Slovak court decision to extradite him to Russia. In April 2014, the European Court of Human Rights ruled his appeal as unacceptable. In May 2014, the Slovak minister of justice passed a final decision to extradite Chentiyev to Russia.
