A court in Yerevan, the capital of Armenia, has dismissed a motion filed by prosecutors seeking detention of Russian national Sergei Mironov charged with money laundering and illegal arms export, RIA Novosti reported on Monday.
The issue of Sergey Mironov’s possible extradition is not yet closed and will be solved within 40 days, Ruben Kirakosyan, President of the Russian-Armenian Bar Association, told RIA Novosti.
“Before that Mironov will be in freedom, but will have to stay in Yerevan. He will not be allowed to leave the country until the issue is settled,” Kirakosyan explained.
Mironov, 30, was detained in the Armenian capital, Yerevan, on Friday for alleged money laundering and illegal transfer of military technology after the US government request.
The man is an employee of Moscow office of Synesis, the company developing intelligent video surveillance and business intelligence based on computer vision, RIA Novosti reported.
