No extradition for Berezovsky’s former son-in-law
The Russian representatives missed the opportunity to appeal against the London court's decision to refuse the extradition of Georgy Shuppe.
The former son-in-law of Boris Berezovsky, Georgy Shuppe, is no longer facing an extradition to Russia. Moscow did not appeal against the decision of the London court, which refused to extradite the businessman, the BBC reports.
The agency recalls that the Russian side had two weeks to appeal, but Moscow did not do this. On Friday, August 18, the court returned the pledge to Berezovsky's former son-in-law.
As the CrimeRussia previously wrote, Georgy Shuppe was placed on the international wanted list in 2014, and in 2015 the Moscow City Court authorized the in absentia arrest of Boris Berezovsky's son-in-law. According to the investigation, Shuppe, along with businessman Mikhail Nekrich, is the contractor of the murder of multi-millionaire Alexander Mineyev, who was shot by in his own SUV on January 22, 2014. The death of the oligarch was preceded by a swift raider capture of firms belonging to him by unknown people.
At the end of November 2014, law enforcement officers detained the perpetrators – Boris Karamatov and Dmitry Kurylenko, who called the investigation the names of the 'contractors'.
