Fugitive Russian Prosecutor Arrested in Poland

Poland has detained former Russian high-ranking prosecutor Aleksandr Ignatenko, wanted by Moscow for his alleged involvement in a network of illegal casinos. Ignatenko was taken into custody on a road leading to Poland's southern Tatra Mountains resort of Zakopane, where he was to meet his wife and child. Reports say he was in possession of a Lithuanian passport. In May, Russian authorities issued an arrest warrant for Ignatenko, who had been fired from his post as a prosecutor in April after the network of illegal casinos was cracked in the Moscow region in mid-February.
