On February 3, 2017, by the request of the Prosecutor General’s Office of the Russian Federation the competent agencies of the Kingdom of the Netherlands are to extradite Russian citizen Aleksandr Mamontov to Russia.
The investigation accuses him of the crime, stipulated in Article 132 part 4”b” (other actions of sexual character against a person who is known to be under the age of 14) of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation.
The criminal case against Mamontov is pending in the Main Investigative Department of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation for the Moscow Region.
According to the investigation, in March 2013 and in October 2014, Mamontov, being in the Kingdom of Thailand, repeatedly committed actions of sexual character against his female friend’s daughter who was under the age of 14. In October 2013, in the town of Krasnogorsk, Moscow Region, he committed the same action.
Due to Mamontov’s absconding and leaving the Russian Federation, he was declared wanted at the federal and international levels.
In December 2016, Mamontov was arrested in the Netherlands.
In December 2016, the Prosecutor General’s Office of the Russian Federation requested the competent authorities of the Netherlands to extradite Mamontov to Russia. In January 2017, the extradition was granted.
The extradition procedure took less than a month, because Mamontov gave his consent to facilitate it in accordance with the legislation of the Netherlands.
Today Alexandr Mamontov, convoyed by officers of the Russian Federal Penitentiary Service and the Russian National Central Bureau of Interpol, is to be extradited to Russia.
