Recently released Taro gets arrested
It is expected that he will be held in a pre-trial detention center until May 19, after which he will be deported from Russia.
The Sol-Iletsk court in the Orenburg region has arrested thief in law Tariel Oniani (Taro), who was released from prison today after serving almost 10 years, for 40 days. As Assistant Chairman of the court Liniza Shevchik told RIA Novosti, the vor was taken in custody immediately at the entrance to the colony.
Knowing about further deportation, Oniani planned to go to Turkey. He was supposed to be extradited to Georgia, from where he would have left for Turkey.

His further route is unknown, since, according to Shevchik, the arrest of Oniani is due to the fact that Spanish law enforcement bodies have put him on the international wanted list. In Spain, he is charged with Money-Laundering and Organization of a Criminal Community.
The 60-year-old head of the Kutaisi thieves’ clan, Oniani was serving his time in the special-security colony Cherny Delfin in Sol-Iletsk. In July 2010, the Khamovnichesky Court of Moscow sentenced him to 10 years' imprisonment for Kidnapping and Extortion. He was to be released on June 11, 2019, but he managed to achieve a reduction of the sentence to 9 years and 10 months. In 2018, MIA Head Vladimir Kolokoltsev signed an order on the expulsion of the crime lord from Russia.
