MOSCOW, November 13, 16:18 /ITAR-TASS/. Cambodian court will meet on Thursday to decide on the extradition of businessman Sergei Polonsky wanted in Russia on fraud charges, a lawyer told Itar-Tass.
"The extradition hearing has been postponed. It is likely to take place in Sihanoukville tomorrow. I helped Polonsky's wife visit him in prison; I have nothing more to add," lawyer Alexander Karabanov said on Wednesday.Earlier, reports said the extradition hearing was to take place on Wednesday evening.
On June 14, Russian investigators charged the businessman in absentia with fraud in the Kutuzovskaya Milya housing construction project, where more than 80 citizens were recognized as injured parties. The investigators said the Polonsky-controlled company had received about 5.7 billion roubles from investors but then suspended construction failing to meet the contract terms. The company administration then deliberately initiated bankruptcy and liquidation proceedings.
On September 26, the Russian Interior Ministry put Polonsky on the international wanted list.
Wednesday reports from Cambodia said the businessman had been running development projects in that country and that he had purchased eight local islands.
