Polish Prosecutor Wants to Extradite a Chechen Refugee

The Polish television channel TVN24 has reported that the General Prosecutor of Poland applied to the Supreme Court to reconsider the request of extradition to the Russian Federation for former Chechen fighter Adam Mamilov.

The General Prosecutor of Poland applied to the Supreme Court because in June 2010, the District Court in Bielsko-Biała had rejected the extradition demand from the Russian Federation.

“The Supreme Court will reconsider the opinion about the extradition demand whether it is permissible by law or not,” said Mateusz Martyniuk, spokesman of the Poland’s General Prosecutor, but did not give any details.

If the Supreme courts agrees to extradition, this decision will be final. However, the final decision on the extradition will be taken by the Minister of Justice.

Recall that Adam Mamilov was a division captain in Grozny. The Prosecutor’s Office of South Ossetia accused him of having participated in the kidnapping of inhabitants of a Chechen village in 1996 and the Russian Federation has demanded his extradition. He has a tolerated right to stay in Poland.
