MOSCOW, January 29. /TASS/. The United States is pushing ahead with its campaign of "hunting for Russian citizens" in third countries, the Russian Foreign Ministry’s commissioner for human rights, democracy and rule of law, Konstantin Dolgov, said on the Life News television news channel.
"Regrettably, what we call manhunt for Russian citizens in third countries is continuing," he said. "They are arrested on very far-fetched charges. We are told nothing. As for Russian law enforcement agencies, they do not get any preliminary information from the Americans, which violates the bilateral treaty of 1999 on mutual legal assistance in criminal cases."
Dolgov said this has become a negative, sad trend.
"When our people are extradited to the United States, regrettably they cannot expect a fair trial. We keep raising all of these questions to the US side at various levels. It is a very serious factor that overshadows the climate of our relations."
Dolgov remarked that the presumption of innocence situation in the United States "leaves much to be desired."
"Many Russian citizens, who have been arrested by the US authorities, have been able to experience the real worth of US justice," he said.
