Thief in law Taro to wait for extradition to Spain in Orenburg
The ‘thief’ was detained as soon as he left Cherny delfin (Black dolphin).
‘Thief in law’ Tariel Oniani (aka Taro) is going to wait for his extradition to Spain in an Orenburg-based remand prison #3, reports 1743 portal with reference to sources.
Taro is anticipated to remain there until May 19. The ‘thief’ was arrested on April 9 as soon as he left Cherny delfin (Black dolphin) where he had spent his 10 years’ term for abduction of a businessman. The ‘thief in law’ was placed in detention at the request of Spain where he had been searched for on charges of money laundering and creation of a criminal community.
Since the 1990s, Oniani had been living in Spain where he had dealt with doubtful business along with another ’thieves in law’ Shakro Molodoy. In 2005, local law enforcers carried out a major special operation called Osa (Bee) in Europe. More than 400 police officers - with use of armored fighting vehicles and helicopters - carried out searches in about 50 buildings owned by the ‘thief’ in various cities around the country. Oniani managed to escape then. He came back to Russia and gained citizenship in 2006.
In 2009, he was detained on accusation of abduction of a businessman and extortion. In July, 2010, Moscow’s Khamovniki court sentenced the ‘thief’ to 10 years of imprisonment.
After release, Taro was going to set off for Turkey. In fact, he was to be sent to Georgia where he would have set off for Istanbul straight away. But it wasn’t meant to be.
