Pavlichenko's delayed extradition
The name of Oleg Pavlichenko was mentioned many times during hearings of “False business” block. Pavlichenko was put on the international wanted list in October of 2012 together with Bergey Ryskaliyev, his brother Amanzhan Rysakli, Aibat Souleimenov, Rustem Albakasov and others (altogether 13 people) suspected in embezzlement of budget funds and other serious crimes. Pavlichenko was the first of the fugitives found by our financial police. Former director of StroiContraktGroup LLP Pavlichenko was detained in Moscow on November 21, 2013, said the deputy chief of the Department for fighting against economic and corruption crimes of Atyrau Oblast Zangar Zankanov in February of this year. When we send an inquiry to FInPol about Pavlichenko's current whereabouts, the answer was that he is in detention centre in Moscow.
43-year-old native of Aktove Oblast Pavlichenko is suspected of creation of false businesses with the purpose of laundering budget funds. If proven guilty, he will face 12 years of imprisonment with property confiscation.
It is hard to believe that his extradition from Russia took more than 10 months now. And still nobody knows when he will be extradicted.
