Russian authorities are preparing documents to request extradition of the former chairman of BTA Bank Mukhtar Ablyazov recently arrested in France, Russian Interior Ministry told Interfax. “The documents required for his extradition will be ready shortly,” a representative of the Ministry said. Mukhtar Ablyazov was arrested on July 31 not far from Cannes under an extradition request from Ukraine. The Aix-en-Provence court decided to leave Mukhtar Ablyazov in custody until the decision on his extradition is made. The extradition is awaited by Kazakhstan, Russia and Ukraine as Ablyazov is wanted in all of these countries for major fraud. Kazakhstan has no extradition agreement with France and extradition to Russia may face some limitations. That’s why Ablyazov will most likely be extradited to Ukraine. Meanwhile, Amnesty International has called the authorities in France to make sure that Mukhtar Ablyazov gets a fair extradition process and that he is not sent to any country that may return him to Kazakhstan.
