Georgia will Extradite a Hacker to Russia who is involved in a Murder Case

According to investigators,  hacker Yaroslav Sumbaev and another 28 people stole 17 million rubles in fake ticket refunds from Russian Railways and S7 Airlines. Investigator Yevgeny Shishkina, who was killed in the village of Arkhangelsk, investigated this case.

Deputy Prime Minister and Head of the Ministry of Justice of Georgia Thea Tsulukiani ordered to extradite to Russia the hacker Yaroslav Sumbaev, who is in the Russian Federation on the case of the murder of investigator Yevgeny Shishkina in the Arkhangelskoye settlement near Moscow. This was reported by TASS with reference to the press service of the Georgian Ministry of Justice.

The press service of the department said that the extradition order was issued on September 30, 2019. The exact date of hacker transfer to Russia is still unknown.

“This is one of those cases in which we ask, as necessary, legal guarantees from any state. Now we are waiting for transportation, the exact date of which is not known. Sumbaev got acquainted with the order on October 15, and he has a reasonable time before transferring to appeal to the Strasbourg court to suspend extradition, which is his right, ”the press service said.

The extradition of Sumbaev was allowed by the Tbilisi City Court in May 2019. The man was detained in November 2018 for illegally carrying a weapon and making and using a fake document. Later, these charges were dropped from him, but an audit showed that he was wanted by Interpol at the request of the Russian authorities.

According to Interpol, Russia accuses Sumbaev and another 28 people of embezzlement of 17 million rubles in fake ticket refunds from Russian Railways and S7 Airlines. The scheme was valid in 2013-2014.

The case of theft was investigated by Elena Shishkina, who was killed on September 10, 2018, in the village of Arkhangelsk. In March 2019, Abdulaziz Abdulaziz, born in 2000 and a 17-year-old local resident, was detained on suspicion of murder in St. Petersburg. They were charged with assault on the life of a person administering justice or a preliminary investigation (Article 295 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation) and illegal possession of weapons (part 1 of Article 222 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation). According to the investigation, the perpetrator of the murder was Abdulazizov, and the 17-year-old Petersburger was an intermediary.
