WASHINGTON, September 9. /TASS/. US immigration authorities confirmed on Tuesday that they seek to deport Slava Voynov, a Russian ice hockey star from NHL’s Los Angeles Kings.
The Russian defenseman was detained by US Immigration and Customs Enforcement [ICE] last week shortly after being released from a California jail where he served a three-month sentence for domestic violence in regard to his wife.
US Immigration & Customs Enforcement Western Region Communications Director Virginia Kice told TASS that ICE's decision to take Voynov into custody and place him in removal proceedings was based on "a comprehensive review of the case."
"As with anyone who's facing deportation, he'll be afforded due process and the immigration court will ultimately determine whether he'll be subject to removal from the U.S.," she said.
An ICE official, who asked not to be identified, told TASS that ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations has declined to set a bond in Voynov’s case "given his prior conviction for a crime of violence.".
