HANOI, December 6. (Itar-Tass) - Two Russian citizens were extradited from Vietnam on Friday, held by police there at the request of Interpol's Russian bureau.
Valery Polyakov, born in 1974, and Aleksey Kosenyuk, born in 1977, were transferred to Russian law-enforcement authorities and left Vietnam under escort. Both citizens of Novokuznetsk in Siberia are accused in Russia of assembling an organised criminal group.
In October 2009, Novokuznetsk court ordered the men's detention but they had already left the country. Russia'a Prosecutor General put them on the federal wanted list and from August 2012, they were listed by Interpol.
On July 9, the men were detained at Lao Bao international border gate in the Vietnamese central province of Quangr Tri as they tried to enter Laos.
The suspects are reported to have lived a long time in Thailand after leaving Russia. In March this year, they moved to Vietnam, staying in the city of Nha Trang on the south-central coast until their detention.
In October 2013, Hanoi people’s court approved the Russian extradition request under an agreement on mutual legal assistance between Russia and Vietnam.
