Spain Holds Out Extradition Promises to Russia
During his official visit to Spain, Russias Prosecutor General Yury Chaika told the reporters yesterday, he handed in to the Justice Ministry of that country a list of 14 persons, whose extradition is strongly demanded by Russia. Amid them are two persons charged with killing Magadan Regions Governor Valentin Tsvetkov and Chechnyas militant Murat Gasaev.
Chaika said he requested his colleagues in Spains Justice Ministry and Prosecutor General Office to speed up the extradition of 14 persons charged with grave crimes and was promised the support. But in Spain, they will hardly go us far as amending the extradition laws to please our chief prosecutor.

In that country of Europe, the extradition goes through two stages - the trial and governments consideration. Usually a year and a half will pass from persons detention in Spain to his departure to Moscow. This year, for instance, Spain has extradited only one Russian the former chief of Vityaz-Sport private firm of guards accused of arranging the murder of Optifood wholesale firms owner Mikhail Vyunsh in 2002.

Nowadays, Russias prosecutors are looking forward to the soon extradition of Martin Babakekhyan and Alexander Zakharov, who were arrested past July in Andalusias Marbella and who are accused of killing Magadan Regions Governor Valentin Tsvetkov in Moscow in 2002.

Other persons on the extradition list of Russia are the figurants of less scandalous crimes investigated by regional prosecutors. Chechen prosecutors, for instance, charged in absentia Murat Gasaev, 33, with participation in the gangs of militants in 2003. Gasaev was detained in Valencia past December and the trial is still underway in Spain.
