France: 10 years' imprisonment for Arthur. Nodar Tbilissky is next
Georgian thieves in law are targeted in the investigation of the criminal case of a major criminal group.
In France, the trial of the case against Georgian thief in law Arthur Yuzbashev, better known in the underworld under the nickname Arthur, reached the final stage. French Themis accuses 41-year-old kingpin in the leadership of the mafia group, engaged in extortion, stealing, and smuggling cigarettes on the territory of the country. The gang of Arthur was operating from 2011 to 2013.
In addition to Yuzbashev, there are 20 people behind bars, presumably, members of the gang. All of them are mostly Georgians and Armenians. It is noteworthy that another crowned thief in law is being held as a suspect in this case. According to the French edition SudOuest, it is Georgian kingpin Nodar Aloyan, nicknamed Nodar Tbilissky. The latter, according to available information, is the godson of Arthur Yuzbashev, and was detained in 2016 in Moscow at the request of Interpol. Currently, France is seeking his extradition in order to jail him.
