SPAIN AGREES EXTRADITION OF KAZAKHSTAN OPPONENT

0

MADRID: The Spanish government said on Wednesday (Thursday in Manila) it has approved the extradition to Kazakhstan of the former chief of security of a Kazakh banker-turned-dissident despite warnings from rights groups that he will face torture. Aleksandr Pavlov was arrested in Spain in December 2012 after his name was placed on Interpol’s wanted list at the request of Kazakh authorities who accuse him of embezzlement and plotting terrorist attacks. He denies the allegations against him.
