    MOSCOW, January 21 (RIA Novosti) - The Russian Federal Security Service has extradited to Georgia Mevluda (Shota) Chichiashvili wanted by Interpol.

    The decision was made after the Georgian Prosecutor General's Office turned with the corresponding request to its Russian counterpart, the Service's director Nikolai Patrushev told a press conference in Moscow.

    According to the Georgian State Security Ministry, Chichiashvili is charged with organizing abduction of foreign businessmen in 2000-2001. He is a defendant in the case of abduction of three Spanish businessmen, employees of the International Committee of the Red Cross and British banker Peter Shaw who were kept in the Pankisi Gorge in Georgia (near the Chechen sector of the Russian-Georgian border) for several months.

    29-year-old Chichiashvili was detained by Russian law-enforcement bodies in Moscow in July 2003.
