BANGKOK, October 14. /TASS/. Thailand has decided to deport Russian citizen Ruslan Valiyev, who was put on an international wanted list in 2012 after fleeing from justice in Russia, a commissioner of Thai Immigration Sakda Cheupakdee said on Tuesday.
Valiyev, 31, a suspect in a fatal traffic accident in Russia’s Urals city of Chelyabinsk, who has been residing in a popular resort of Pattaya for some two years, was apprehended by Thai police following a request from Russia.
“Thanks to the established contacts between the Russian diplomatic mission and competent bodies of Thailand, the issue of deportation has been solved in the shortest possible time,” said Vladimir Sosnov, who heads the consular section at the Russian Embassy in Thailand.
Valiyev is expected to be taken back to Chelyabinsk.
Local prosecutors say Valiyev crashed into an oncoming car, killing three people in 2012. The suspect managed to run away from hospital where he had been taken shortly after the crash.
