Georgia refused to extradite Akhmed Chatayev2012-12-05 17:30
Georgian leadership has refused to extradite former representative of Aslan Maskhadov in Europe Akhmed Chatayev to Russia. This was announced by the Minister of Justice of Georgia Thea Tsulukiani, the Kommersant reported.
In Georgia, he was arrested on charges of participating in an illegal armed group and resisting the authorities after the raid to combat the bandits at the Georgian-Russian border in August.
Prior to Tsulukiani's meeting with relatives of Ahmed Chatayev, an action was held in front of the Ministry of Justice. About 30 representatives of the Chechen community chanted the slogan "Freedom to Akhmed Chatayev!" and held similar posters in English and Russian languages. After meeting with Thea Tsulukiani one of its members told reporters that the minister "promised that trial over Chatayev will be fair and impartial".
In turn, Prosecutor General of the country Archil Kbilashvili stated the hearing must take place on December 6. On November 26, Prosecutor's Office refused lawyer's request to release Chatayev on bail.
Recall, Russian citizen Akhmed Chatayev was arrested in the Lopota Gorge, where the law enforcement agencies of Georgia conducted a special operation to eliminate militant groups. Chatayev is accused of illegal purchase, possession and carrying an explosive device. The hearing on Chatayev's case, scheduled for November 15, was postponed till November 26 due to the absence of witnesses - the border guards and the expert - at the hearing.
