MOSCOW (Sputnik) – An extradition treaty, enabling Cambodia to return fugitive tycoon Sergei Polonsky to Russia, is currently being prepared, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Wednesday.

“The extradition treaty is ready for the most part,” Lavrov said after a meeting with his Cambodian counterpart Hor Namhong. “A final meeting of experts has been scheduled to take place this month, after that we will be able to launch domestic procedures for its signing.”

After a Cambodian court suspended Polonsky’s extradition proceedings last year, Moscow sent another request, which is now being considered, the Russian minister added.

Polonsky, real estate mogul and once one of Russia’s richest men, currently resides in Cambodia. He was charged in Russia over multimillion dollar embezzlement back in 2013 and is currently listed on Interpol’s database.
