Court, Home Office to decide on extradition of former Kyrgyz president's son - ambassador
BISHKEK. April 29 (Interfax) - The Home Office will make a final decision regarding the extradition of Maxim Bakiyev, the junior son of former Kyrgyz President Kurmanbek Bakiyev, British Ambassador to Kyrgyzstan Judith Farnworth told the Akipress news agency on Friday.
If a court decides there are no impediments to the extradition, the case will be referred to the Home Office and it will either approve or deny the extradition, she said.
The ambassador added that the Home Office's decision would be based on the court ruling.
If the British home secretary decides to issue the extradition warrant, Maxim Bakiyev will have the right to appeal to the High Court, Farnworth said.
If the High Court turns down the appeal, he may appeal to the Supreme Court, and an appeal may be lodged with the European Court of Human Rights afterwards, Farnworth said.
The London Westminster Court will hear the case on the extradition of Maxim Bakiyev to the United States on May 13. He is accused of securities fraud. The court held its first hearing in December 2012.
According to unofficial reports, the junior son of the ex-Kyrgyz president took residence in London after the change of administration in Kyrgyzstan in April 2010 and received political refugee status. British authorities made no comment on the report.
The home country accused Maxim Bakiyev of economic felonies. The Bishkek District Court sentenced him in absentia in February to a long prison term and property impoundment.
Kyrgyzstan hopes for an affirmative decision of the UK and is drafting agreements with the UK and the U.S. on the extradition of lawbreakers.
