Russia to supply documents for ex-prosecutor's extradition from Poland

09:54 17/01/2012

MOSCOW, January 17 - RAPSI. The Investigative Committee has sent to the Prosecutor General's Office a complete set of documents necessary for the extradition of former Moscow Region Deputy Prosecutor Alexander Ignatenko, the committee's spokesman Vladimir Markin told RIA Novosti on Monday.

"The documents required for extradition have been translated into Polish, the language of the country where the suspect was detained... The documents have been delivered to the Prosecutor General's Office," said Markin.

Ignatenko was placed on the international wanted list after an infamous gambling scandal.

The high-profile illegal casino scandal incited a public uproar in spring 2011. Businessman Ivan Nazarov allegedly operated illegal casinos in 15 towns in the Moscow region.
According to law enforcement authorities, high-ranking officials of prosecutor's offices and the Interior Ministry were involved in the casino operations, which generated $5 to $10 million in revenue monthly.

Poland's Internal Security Agency detained Ignatenko at the popular Polish ski resort, Zakopane on January 1. On January 4, the Nowy Sacz District Court decided to place him in custody until February 9, 2012.

Polish Prosecutor General's Office Press Secretary Mateus Martenuk told RIA Novosti that Warsaw was expecting a request for the suspect's extradition from Poland. As soon as the court receives the materials, he said, it will examine whether it is possible to hand Ignatenko over to Russia. The Polish Justice Minister will make the final decision in the matter.
