BANGKOK, August 18. /TASS/. Thailand’s authorities have received a request for the extradition of Russian national Dmitry Ukrainsky accused of fraud and money laundering to the United States, Ukrainsky’s lawyer Nathan Feeney told TASS on Thursday.
"The Thai authorities already received extradition requests," the lawyer said.
On July 15, Dmitry Ukrainsky was detained near his home in Pattaya, Thailand, and immediately incarcerated in a detention facility by immigration police in Bangkok. The warrant for his arrest was issued by a Thai court based on charges of money laundering in the United States. After Ukrainsky’s whereabouts were established, on August 1, Russian Deputy Prosecutor General Viktor Grin signed a request to the Office of the Attorney General of Thailand for his transfer to the Russian side.
This document envisages both the extradition procedure and possible deportation. The Russian embassy has filed a protest note with the Thai Foreign Ministry, which states that the Russian citizen’s extradition to the United States would be unacceptable and that the issue should be settled exclusively within a legal framework. According to Thailand’s police, he may be extradited to the United States by a corresponding decision of a local court.
By law, the Thai side should have gotten all extradition documents within two months of the arrest and resolved the case.
