At the request of the Prosecutor General's Office of the Russian Federation, the competent authorities of the Kingdom of Bahrain extradited to Russia the RF citizen Ms. Viktoria Galinova.
She is accused by the investigation of the crime specified in Article 160 (3) (misappropriation, that is, stealing someone else's property entrusted to the guilty person, committed by a person with the use of his/her official position) of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation.
According to the investigation, from 2014 to 2016, Ms.Galinova, being an insurance agent in the Republic of Komi, embezzled the money derived from insurance payments.
Since Galinova disappeared from criminal prosecution, she was placed on the international wanted list at the request of the Prosecutor General's Office of the Russian Federation.
In July 2018, she was detained in the territory of Bahrain, after which the Prosecutor General's Office of the Russian Federation sent an extradition request for her criminal prosecution.
Owing to the close cooperation between the Prosecutor General's Office of the Russian Federation and the competent authorities of this state, it was possible to obtain a decision on her extradition.
Accompanied by a special convoy, Viktoria Galinova was brought to Russia.
