Are Czech Asylum Facilities Extraterritorial Zones of Russia?

The Czech website Blisty.cz has published a striking article about the activities of Russian representatives in Czech asylum facilities.

According to the article, Adam Akayev, a Chechen asylum seeker, has repeatedly asked for asylum from Austria. However, his applications were rejected and sent back to the Czech Republic because of the Dublin II regulation. At this time, his identity was established without doubt.

Reportedly, in March 2011, ten months after the extradition of the Chechen asylum seeker, Czech police asked the Russian Embassy to verify the identity of Adam Akayev, which is a serious violation of international law. In addition, on April 20th, an anonymous representative from the Embassy of the Russian Federation visited the asylum facility in Poštorná to see Adam Akayev. He was supposed to have signed a voluntary return document for the Russian Federation. In reality, Adam never submitted the request.
