Russia Appeals To Georgia To Extradite Chechen Rebels

Russia's General Prosecutor's Office is actively negotiating with Georgia's law-enforcers the extradition of 13 Chechen rebels detained last June when they penetrated into Georgia from Russia. Russian presidential aide Sergei Yastrzhembsky said as much at a press conference on Tuesday. In his words, Russia's Prosecutor General's Office has already handed over the list of the detained rebels, accused of involvement in the explosions in Pyatigorsk, Mineralnye Vody and other cities of Russia, to their Georgian colleagues. Investigator at large Igor Tkachev of the Prosecutor General's Office is currently in Georgia, negotiating the extradition issue. Yastrzhembsky described the negotiations with all the concerned departments of Georgia as fruitful. The presidential aide also noted that Georgia's final decision will show its willingness to fight against international terrorism.
