Dubai Extradites Tajik Opposition Leader

A Dubai court has approved the extradition of Tajik opposition leader Umarali Kuvvatov, 46, his lawyer Nikolai Nikolayev said. Interpol arrested Kuvvatov last December at Dubai International Airport at the request of the Tajik authorities on charges of fraudulent business activities. He arrived in the United Arab Emirates on a transit flight from Moscow to Brussels via Baku. "The Dubai court has decided to extradite Kuvvatov," his lawyer has written on Facebook, adding that he still has not received a copy of the courts decision. "This does not mean that Kuvvatov will be extradited immediately. We will take other measures in compliance with UAE legislation," Nikolayev writes.
