The court has refused to give to Russia the former co-owner of Trust bank Ilya Yurov: allegedly in case of an extradition respect for human rights and fair judicial proceedings wouldn't be guaranteed to him. What actually means this decision? Georgy Bovt. Photo: Mikhail of Fomichev/TASS Court in Great Britain has denied the request of Russia for an extradition of the former co-owner of Trust bank Ilya Yurov. Russia has put him on the international wanted list for embezzlement. The basis for refusal in an extradition was the fact that in Russia concerning Yurov respect for human rights and fair judicial proceedings wouldn't be guaranteed. The court has noted that Yurov's prosecution in Russia has been politically motivated and connected with history of "illegal capture" of the Yukos company of Mikhail Khodorkovsky.in the mid-nineties Yurov worked in Menatep bank which owner was Khodorkovsky. Investigation concerning Yurov has begun in 2014 after the Otkrytiye bank has begun sanitation of Trust for which of the state budget 127 billion rubles have been allocated. In Trust the shortage of the capital of 114 billion rubles has been found. The next year criminal case about large scale fraud has been brought. Yurov became only one of defendants. At the request of Russia in 2016 he has been detained in Ukraine, however Kiev has refused to give him to Moscow. What actually means the decision of the British court? About it in Georgy Bovt's comment. On 25 pages all charges against Ilya Yurov and also his accomplices Nikolay Fetisov, Sergey Belyaev and their wives who have left Russia too are in detail listed in the conclusion of the Westminster district court of magistrates. For form's sake 830 million dollars have even been frozen before consideration of the case. However about a half of the motivated judgment were made by reasonings not so much on legitimacy or illegality of charges, and how closely in Russia business is bound with policy as imperfectly Russian justice in general and as in the Russian prisons torture people. That is charges in itself of Yurov's fraud and the company have turned out kind of beaten on the basis of only reminiscences how Rosneft has occupied the Yukos company and also how Igor Sechin "has locked" up the minister Alexey Ulyukaev. After so plentiful references to policy it is difficult to call the decision of the most British court not politized. Of course, it is possible to consider that the British court thus revenges for good reason Skripalya or much earlier refusal of Russia to give to London those whom she accused of poisoning of the former officer of FSB Alexander Litvinenko. However the lack of distribution Great Britain of Russia of corrupt officials and swindlers is a long tradition. Now on the Foggy Albion there are not less than one hundred people whose extradition was demanded from the British authorities by Russia, thus that in due time between two countries even the bilateral agreement about an extradition has been concluded. Such agreements are available for Great Britain with more than one hundred states, but regularly this mechanism works р
