HANOI, October 15 (Itar-Tass) - The Hanoi People’s Court has satisfied Russia’s request for extradition of two Russian citizens detained by Interpol in Vietnam.
The detainees will be extradited in compliance with the effective mutual legal assistance treaty between Russia and Vietnam, the local media reports.
Vladimir Polyakov and Alexei Kosenok were arrested on July 9 while undergoing a passport control in Lao Bao in central Vietnam province of Quang Tri on their way to Laos.
Born in Novokuznetsk, an industrial city in central Siberia, in 1974 and 1977 respectively, Polyakov and Kosenok were charged with organizing a criminal group. In October 2009 Novokuznetsk’s court ordered to take them into custody, but they managed to flee the country. They were put on the federal wanted list and since August 2012 - on the international wanted list.
Investigators found out that the detainees had lived in Thailand and other countries of the region for a long time. In March 2013, they entered Vietnam to reside in a resort of Nha Trang, where they had stayed until they were detained on the Vietnamese-Laotian border.
