MOSCOW, August 4. /TASS/. More than 25 people on international wanted list have been extradited to Russia thanks to Interpol in 2015, including leaders and members of organized criminal groups, Russia’s Interior Minister Vladimir Kolokoltsev said on Tuesday at a meeting with Interpol Secretary General Jurgen Stock in Jakarta.
The meeting between Kolokoltsev and Stock took place in the framework of 35th conference on ASEAN police (ASEANAPOL) underway in Indonesia. Kolokoltsev noted that for Russia, one of the most important aspects of fighting crime is the practical implementation of the principle of inevitability of punishment. "In this connection, Interpol provides unique instruments that allow to find criminals who try to escape justice in the furthest parts of the planet. Since the start 2015, more than 25 people on international wanted list have been handed to Russia, including leaders and members of organized criminal groups," the Interior Ministry’s press service quoted Kolokoltsev as saying.
One of the main principles of Russian police is its openness to the public, the minister said. "It is the only way to create the atmosphere of trust between law enforcers and citizens," he noted. "It became a significant event for us when in November 2014, Police Major-General Alexander Prokopchuk of Russia, the Head of Interpol’s National Central Bureau in Moscow, was elected to Interpol Executive Committee. I am convinced that his experience in international police cooperation and fighting against transnational crime will prove useful in Interpol’s work," Kolokoltsev stressed.
