The Prosecutor General’s Office of Ukraine appealed to the law enforcement bodies of France with a request on the extradition of Artem Sarkisyan suspected in the organization of the government-hired thugs during the Revolution of Dignity as Ukrainian News reported citing the source.
‘The request was filed on April 16’, the source said, adding that the necessary documents were translated and passed to the French side.
As we reported on April 12, the Interpol operatives detained Armen Sarkisyan in France. Sarkisyan was detained during the check of IDs as he was on the road. The court ruled that the detainee should live up to the legal precepts by May 19. By then, the documents from Ukraine should reach France.
Later it was reported that the Ukrainian law enforcers planned to send the photo of Sarkisyan to the French colleagues. It was supposed that only after the identifications of suspected Ukraine will be able to file the extradition request to France.
Also, it was noted that Yuriy Krysin, the one who was among the murderers of reporter Vyacheslav Veremiy is the so-called ‘subordinate’ of Sarkisyan.
