Economic crisis saved Dzhemo
Neither Russia nor Italy wants to pay for the extradition of the kingpin.
As it became known, Italy has refused to pay for the flight of the kingpin Jemal Mikeladze, but Italy initiated the investigation. Lawyers of Mikeladze, better known in the criminal world by the nickname Dzhemo, believed that the reason for it was the economic crisis, because of which neither Russia nor Italy want to spend money on the extradition of the thief in law. It is noteworthy that at the hearing the wife of Dzhemo offered to take these costs, promising to pay the business class ticket not only to him, but also the guards. The Court was not inspired and refused.
Meanwhile, Dzhemo, whom the Italian court sentenced in absentia to 15 years in prison for the creation of transnational mafia gang, extortion, bribery, money laundering and documens’ swindling, is in the Kemerovo pre-trial detention center. Immediately after the liberation of the Kemerovo penal colony № 5, where he was serving time, the kingpin was told that he was deprived of Russian citizenship and declared persona non-grata for life in Russia.
Previously, the CrimeRussia reported that in addition to Dzhemo into the Italian criminal case there were his colleagues Chhvindi, Tsripa or Buja. All of them were sentenced in absentia to long terms and are in the international wanted list. Note that the source of the CrimeRussia made available to the edition exclusive documents, relating to Dzhemo's extradition to Italy. With them you can get acquainted here.
