Russia demands extradition of architect accused of stealing Rostec head money
The hearings are yet to be appointed.
The Prosecutor General's Office of the Russian Federation prepared and sent materials to Spain for the extradition of famous architect Nana Hernandez Getashvili. Fugitive Hernandez Getashvili is accused in absentia of especially large scale theft during the construction of Rostec head Sergey Chemezov and his wife Ekaterina Ignatova mansion.
The source of Rosbalt reports that Spain has already received all the necessary materials for the extradition of Hernandez Getashvili. The materials are currently being studied in the law enforcement structures of Spain, but judicial hearings on extradition have not yet been scheduled.
Now Hernandez Getashvili is at large in Spain, but her freedom of movement is limited. In addition to the citizenship of the Russian Federation, Getashvili has Portuguese citizenship, and it complicates the possibility of her extradition to Russia. Hernandez Getashvili was detained by police during her trip to Spain. When checking the documents, it turned out that Russia had been put her on the wanted list.
Recall, wife of Sergey Chemezov, Ekaterina Ignatova, owns a plot of 1.4 hectares since 2009, and a house with an area of 4442.5 meters. This house was listed in the declaration of the Rostec head. The architect had to carry out the designer’s supervision of the construction and finishing works of the mansion, as well as purchase interior items. At the same time, the materials of the case include an abstract formulation "over 1 million rubles". However, Hernandez Getashvili failed to fulfill her obligations.
In September 2016, officers of the Central Internal Affairs Directorate conducted searches in the premises belonging to the mother and sister of Hernandez Getashvili. Almost all the responsible employees of the NG Cinema company, which the architect owns, were interrogated. Investigative actions took place within the framework of the criminal case initiated in December 2015 under part 4 of Art. 159 of the Criminal Code (Swindling on an especially large scale).
A petition against the shooting of stray animals in anticipation of the 2018 FIFA World Cup has been signed by more than 1.5 million people. Famous Russian actors made a stand for the animals. Protest rallies were held in some cities. The FIFA is getting letters from animal advocates. French actress Brigitte Bardot has personally addressed Vladimir Putin asking to stop the killing of animals for the sake of football.
