“The court ruled to lift from Polonsky the charges of deprivation of freedom and beating of Cambodian citizens, as the injured parties revoked their lawsuits against him,” the source said. Meanwhile, the court could not hear Russia’s extradition request for him, because it did not receive all necessary documents from Russia, the source said.
The criminal case was opened against Polonsky over an incident onboard the ship, which was bringing the businessman and his friends on the coast after a trip to the island on December 30, 2012.
In October 2013, Polonsky was put on Interpol wanted list at a request from the Russian Interior Ministry. Russia has made an extradition request for the businessman in Cambodia. In Russia, the business tycoon is a defendant in more than 5.7 billion ruble fraud ($171.6 million). Tverskoy court in Moscow accused in absentia Polonsky of a massive fraud committed by an organized criminal group. Eighty defrauded depositors are considered as injured parties in the criminal case, as the latter invested their money in the construction of the residential district “Kutuzovskaya Mile” in Moscow.
