Georgia answers Russia’s request on Glukhov via Switzerland

2009-07-08 11:14

Georgian Ministry of Justice that refused to extradite Sergeant Alexander Glukhov informs of sending an official reply to the request by Russian Prosecutor-General's Office via Switzerland.


It was stated by a Ministry of Justice spokesman, RIA Novosti reports.

"We have already sent an official reply via diplomatic channels: the official document was given to the Swiss Embassy in Georgia", - the press service informed.

Russian Prosecutor-General's Office has not received Tbilisi's official reply to Glukhov request yet.

Early this year sergeant Glukhov left his unit in South Ossetia and fled to Georgia where he was granted political asylum. A criminal case under art. 338 of Russia's Criminal Code (desertion) was initiated against Glukhov in Russia. Glukhov says one of the reasons why he ran away was ill-treatment by his unit commanders.

This May the request for the soldier's extradition to the Russian side was sent to Tbilisi via the Swiss Embassy.

On Tuesday Georgia's Ministry of Justice disseminated a message denying Glukhov's extradition. Before Georgia received Glukhov's extradition request the Ministry for Refugees and Resettlement met his request for refugee status.
