Belarus Rejects Extradition of Bakiyev to Kyrgyzstan

Belarusian authorities for the second time denied an official request by the Prosecutor’s Office of Kyrgyzstan to extradite the former President of that country, Kurmanbek Bakiyev. Bakiyev has been staying in Belarus since April 19, 2010, by personal invitation of the Belarusian President, Alexander Lukashenko. In May 2010, the newly-elected President of Kyrgyzstan, Rosa Otunbayeva, signed a decree stripping Bakiyev of his immunity, based on a criminal case charging him with corruption and organization of murders.
