Serbia turned fugitive drug dealer over to Russian authorities
Soon, 30-year-old Aleksandr Obukhovsky will be extradited from Serbia to Ufa.
The Russian Prosecutor's Office appealed to the Serbian authorities to extradite a runaway criminal. Soon he will be taken to Ufa and stand trial.
According to the investigative bodies, Aleksandr Obukhovsky and his friend drug dealer were detained in the capital of Bashkortostan in 2013 on suspicion of drug possession.
Then, searches conducted by police officers revealed over 500 g of synthetic drug. However, the young man managed to hide from law enforcers and flee abroad. As for his accomplice, he appeared before the court in 2014 and was sentenced to 6 years and 2 months in prison.
According to the press service of the Bashkortostan Prosecutor's Office, after Obukhovsky is delivered home, he will be brought to trial. He is charged with possession and preparation of drugs for sale.
Saburova believes that the Russian authorities violated articles 2 and 5 of the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms, guaranteeing the right to life, as well as the right to freedom and personal inviolability.
