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.
Former member of the Federation Council believes that this once again points to numerous violations and falsification of evidence during the investigation of his criminal case on charges of bribe-taking in the amount of 27.5 million rubles ($457 thousand).
