Russia and Kyrgyzstan back to fugitive Aziz's case

At a meeting in Moscow the parties came to the conclusion that the extradition process will be resumed as soon as a thief in law will serve his sentence in Chechnya.⁠

The competent authorities of Kyrgyzstan and Russia agreed to start a new extradition process of fugitive kingpin Aziz Batukaev, known in the criminal world as Aziz. The agreement was reached during the meeting of the Russian Prosecutor General Yuri Chaika and his colleague from Kyrgyzstan Indir Dzholdubaev, which was held recently in Moscow.

In the course of communication Chaika and Dzholdubaev discussed cooperation on the many aspects of the public prosecutor's activity, however, the Aziz’s question stood apart. Recall that Aziz is the Chechen thief in law, who, being condemned in Kyrgyzstan to 16 years and 8 months in prison, could get parole in connection with a serious illness. According to the documents provided to the court by the lawyer, the thief in law is suffering acute leukemia and severe form of liver cirrhosis. In April 2013, the Narynsky City Court released the kingpin at large, so that he could go home to die in Chechnya.

However, after Batukaev left Kyrgyzstan, it became clear that the court received false results of the medical examination. In March 2014, freed kingpin was declared wanted by Interpol. The search did not last long - he was found in his native Chechnya, where he has already become involved in the case of illegal possession of weapons. Since then, the General Prosecutor's Office of Kyrgyzstan is trying to extradite him. At the moment, a prison sentence prevents this process, he received this term for illegal possession of weapons. At a meeting in Moscow the parties came to the conclusion that the extradition process will be resumed as soon as a thief in law will serve his sentence in Chechnya.
