MOSCOW, January 15 /TASS/. Switzerland has extradited to Russia a Russian national suspected of stealing 100 million rubles ($1.2 million), the Russian Interior Ministry said on Friday.
"Interpol’s Russia-based office escorted Boris Mazursky, a resident of Russia’s Tver region, from Geneva to Moscow. He is suspected of stealing 100 million rubles," the ministry’s press center said.
Interpol put Mazursky on the international wanted list in 2010 as part of a criminal case opened in connection with embezzlement that inflicted particularly great damage. "He [Mazursky] was director-general of the dealership of a well-known plant. In 2006, he struck a number of deals with a commercial organization for the sale and purchase of trucks under which the dealer pledged to sell 86 trucks worth almost 130 million rubles [$1.6 million]," the Interior Ministry went on to say. Mazursky transferred part of money received from the purchase company to the trucks manufacturer. He stole the remaining 95 million rubles [about $1.2 million] and escaped abroad.
The Russian Prosecutor General’s Office explained, in turn, that the criminal case against Mazursky was being handled by the investigative department of the Russian Investigation Committee for the Tver region. The investigators are accusing Mazursky of embezzlement in huge amount.
The Russian Prosecutor General’s Office established Mazursky’s whereabouts in December 2010 and sent an extradition request to the Swiss competent bodies. Mazursky has been detained in Switzerland. On Friday, the Switzerland handed him over to empIoyees of Interpol’s Russia-based office of the Russian Interior Ministry and the Russian Penitentiary Service for subsequent extradition to Moscow.
