MOSCOW, November 13, 17:18 /ITAR-TASS/. The Cambodian prosecutor’s office has found the materials, which the Russian Prosecutor General’s Office produced for the extradition of fugitive business tycoon Sergei Polonsky, sufficient for his extradition, head of the department for international cooperation on particularly important criminal cases of the Russian Prosecutor General’s Office Denis Grunis told reporters on Wednesday.
“The Cambodian prosecutor’s office has considered the materials produced by the Russian Prosecutor General’s Office and found them sufficient to launch the procedure of extradition under the legislation of that country,” he said.
“On the strength of the Russian request the prosecutor in the Phnom Penh Court of Appeals issued a ruling on November 8 to search for and arrest Polonsky for his extradition that was fulfilled. Presently the extradition case is passed by the prosecutor’s office to try in the Cambodian judicial bodies, which we expect to take a decision soon,” Grunis said.
