MOSCOW, November 15, /ITAR-TASS/. Cambodian authorities have postponed a court hearing regarding the extradition of Russian business tycoon Sergei Polonsky until next week, Polonsky’s lawyer Alexander Karabanov told Itar-Tass on Friday.
He said Phnom Penh’s court had received documents concerning Russian property developer's extradition.
“Now it is unclear why Sergei Polonsky is being kept in prison. All procedural time limits of his detention have already expired. As the trial is postponed not for the first time, we can suppose that the Cambodian authorities are looking for some legal excuses not to extradite my defendant,” Karabanov said.
In June 14, 2013, Russia’s Investigative Committee accused Polonsky of multi-million-dollar fraud charges. He was arrested in absentia. On October 14 Russia’s Interior Ministry put the businessman on the international wanted list.
The Cambodian authorities arrested Polonsky in Sihanoukville, Cambodia’s southern province, on November 11. A police spokesman confirmed that Polonsky would be extradited to Russia, but named no concrete date.
