Azerbaijani authorities deny information about extradition of mob Guli
State authorities have refuted the house arrest of the thief in law.
The Ministry of Justice of Azerbaijan has denied that influential thief in law Nadir Salifov, known as Guli, was deported or extradited to Baku. Information that he is under house arrest in the department also questioned, Sputnik reports. As explained by the Ministry of Justice, it is possible that Guli is in Baku, but certainly not under house arrest. There has to be charges against Nadir Salifov for committing a new crime, but there is no. The official bodies of Azerbaijan could not demand his extradition.
The State Migration Service said it did not have information about the deportation of Salifov. Most likely the thief in law voluntarily arrived in Azerbaijan.
Recall that in October 2017, Guli was released from the Azerbaijani colony after 22-year imprisonment and immediately left the country, first to Georgia, and then to Turkey. In early December 2018, Turkey allegedly extradited the mob to Azerbaijan. According to local media reports, Salifov is under house arrest in Baku.
On the eve, the thief in law met with guests in the apartment. Allegedly, only friend could visit him.
Note that the Russian side demanded his extradition. At the end of last year, the Presnensky Court of Moscow and the Samara District Court arrested in absentia Salifov on charges of Kidnapping (Article 126 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation) and Extortion (Article 163 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation). Given that Lotu Guli is one of the most influential criminal authorities in the post-Soviet space, his placement in a Russian prison could trigger a new illegal war. Moreover, earlier the mob did not accept the results of the appointment of 54-year-old Oleg Shishkanov (Shishkan), as the Russian crime lord.
Six months ago, no one could predict the state of the MIA General Administration for St. Petersburg and the Leningrad Region by the time of the forthcoming elections. After the appointment of Moscow general Roman Plugin in charge of it, the St. Petersburg police has undergone significant changes. Major general of justice Oleg Antropov, Head of the Main Investigations Directorate, is ‘the last man standing’ from the old command of the MIA General Administration. Most probably, he is going to become the next victim of ‘janitor’ Plugin.
