MOSCOW, March 28. /TASS/. Serbia has handed over Timur Emirbekov to Russia, who is accused of being involved in paramilitary units, the Russian Interior Ministry said on its homepage.
"The Interpol bureau staff has extradited Timur Emirbekov, who is accused of crimes punishable under Part II, Article 208 of Russia's Criminal Code," said Irina Volk, the ministry's official spokesperson.
