At the request of the Prosecutor General's Office of the Russian Federation, the competent authorities of Georgia extradited Ilkhom Yorov to Russia.

He is accused by the investigation of the crime specified in Art. 159 (4) of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (fraud, that is stealing someone else's property by deceit, committed by a person with the use of his official position, on a particularly large scale).

In February 2016, the Omutninsky district court of the Kirov region ordered that a preventive measure in the form of detention be applied for him, and he was placed on the wanted list.

Owing to the precise and coordinated actions of the Prosecutor General's Office of the Russian Federation, well-structured close interaction with the competent authorities of Georgia, it was possible to obtain a decision on the extradition of Yorov to Russia.

The Federal Penitentiary Service of Russia was instructed to receive and transfer the perpetrator to the Russian Federation.
