Court chooses not to expel son of thief in law Antik
Ukrainian authorities were trying to deport the youngest son of the thief in law who was the virtual manager of his father’s criminal business.
The Chernigov court refused to expel Nurik Kukhilava, the son of Antimoz Kukhilava (Antik) from Ukraine, reported Dumskaya.net.
According to its sources, Kukhilava, Jr. spent three days in special temporary detention facilities for foreigners, after which he was released.
Earlier, the 32-year-old son of the well-known thief in law had been detained with a Ukrainian passport he had obtained illegally. The Migration Service ordered him to leave the country before the end of June 2017, but he did not comply with the injunction. According to the police, he exerted a strong influence on the criminal situation in Odessa, and was the virtual manager of his father’s criminal business after the latter had been expelled from the country in 2009. It was then that Antik’s son grabbed his father’s criminal business. According to Ukraine’s Ministry of Internal Affairs, the thief in law controlled smuggling routes, pickpockets and bag snatchers. Kukhilava Sr. only came back to Ukraine in 2016.
By the way, Nurik Kukhilava used to be married to the Ukrainian singer Anastasia Prikhodko and they have a common child, a daughter, who is living with Prikhodko now.
Reports on the detention of Antik’s son came on July 4. Kukhilava, Jr. was taken to court that was to decide his fate on the same day, but this was not meant to be. Nurik Kukhilava chose not to wait for the court’s decision and tried to hide along with his lawyers. Moreover, when the operatives attempted to catch the man, the defense lawyers "attacked the guards with fists." He was detained again, and a report was made under Art. 203 and part 2 of Art. 263 of Code of Ukraine on Administrative Offenses. Nurik was jailed for three days and was subsequently moved into special temporary detention facilities for foreigners in Chernigov.
