Tariel Oniani (Taro)

He was detained last week immediately after being released from the Black Dolphin colony.

Thief in Law Tariel Oniani (Taro) will be extradited from Russia to Spain. RIA Novosti reports it with reference to the press center of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia.

According to the department, Oniani was detained by the Orenburg region police for further transfer to the competent authorities of Spain which suspect him of laundering money and organizing a criminal community in accordance with the decision of the Sol-Iletsk District Court of the Orenburg region, as well as on the basis of the provisions of the European Convention on Extradition.

On April 9, the city court arrested the mob for 40 days until May 19, the day he was released from IK-6, after almost 10 years of imprisonment. Oniani was detained as a stateless person on the basis of an international notice of search and arrest. In addition, last summer he was notified of the undesirability of staying in Russia.

First, the FSIN intended to establish a 3-year administrative supervision. In this case, the mob would have to be noted in the internal affairs bodies at the place of residence, and must also be at home from 10:00 pm to 6:00 am. According to Rosbalt, the need for such measures in the department was explained by the systematic violations of the detention.

Since the 90s Oniani lived in Spain, where he was engaged in a dubious business with another well-known thief in law Shakro Molodoy. In 2005, local law enforcement officers conducted one of Europe’s largest police operations, Wasp. More than 400 police officers using armored personnel carriers and helicopters searched about 50 different buildings in different cities of the country that belonged to the mob. Oniani then managed to escape. He returned to Russia, where in 2006 he received citizenship.

In 2009, he was arrested on charges of abduction of a businessman and extortion. The man was forcibly brought to one of the restaurants, where, he was severely beaten with a baseball bat. After that, he was held in an apartment for three days, culprits demanded 500.000 dollars from his relatives. After receiving part of the ransom in the amount of 218 thousand dollars, the defendants freed the victim. After that, they demanded that the entrepreneur pay them the rest of the ransom. Then the victims turned to law enforcement.

In July 2010, the Khamovnichesky Court of Moscow sentenced the thief in law to 10 years in prison. Given the time spent in custody during the investigation, Taro was supposed to be released on June 11, 2019. However, he managed to achieve a reduction in the sentence to 9 years and 10 months.

Oniani planned to go to Turkey. He should have been sent to Georgia, from where he would immediately fly to Istanbul.
