Russian national, Evgeniy Ivanov, was extradited to Russia by the competent authorities of the Republic of Poland upon a request of the Prosecutor General’s Office of the Russian Federation.
On January 20, 2012, the Timsky District Court of the Kursk Region found Mr. Ivanov guilty of perpetration of a crime stipulated by Article 264(3) of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation, that is, the violation by a person driving a vehicle of driving regulations, resulting in infliction of the grave harm to a person’s health by negligence or death of a person by negligence.
The court established that in October 2011, at night, Mr. Ivanov, driving to Borisoglebsk from Kursk, crossed into the oncoming lane and committed road accident, which resulted in the death of the oncoming vehicle driver.
Subject to the cassational ruling of the judicial board on criminal cases of the Kursk Regional Court, he was imposed a punishment in the form of deprivation of freedom for the term of two years and 11 months in the colony-settlement with deprivation of the right to drive vehicles for one year and six months.
In October 2012, during the course of serving a sentence, Mr. Ivanov was brought to the Kursk Regional Hospital for appointment. However he managed to escape from the escorting officers of the Federal Penitentiary Service.
In this connection, a criminal case upon Article 313(1) of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (flight from place of confinement by a person serving a sentence) was instituted against him; a measure of restriction in the form of detention was selected, and he was declared internationally wanted.
In August 2018 his location was tracked on the territory of Poland.
The Prosecutor General’s Office of the Russian Federation sent its foreign colleagues a request for his extradition for the purpose of criminal prosecution.
Owing to the well-organized efforts of the Prosecutor General’s Office of the Russian Federation and close interaction with the competent authorities of the Republic of Poland, his extradition was carried out.
Criminal case is being inquired into by the Investigative Unit 5 of the Investigative Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia for the city of Kursk.
Evgeniy Ivanov, escorted by special convoy, was delivered to Moscow.
