The appeal court in the Serbian city of Nis rejected Ukraine’s request for the extradition of former member of the leadership of the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU), Andrei Naumov, who was detained in Serbia in June 2022. The court confirmed the decision of the Nis High Court, which rejected the request to extradite Naumov to the Ukrainian justice authorities. This information was presented in a message from the Court of Appeal and its press secretary Sasa Boskovic.
This month, the Nis High Court sentenced Naumov to one year in prison for money laundering, but the court counted the 10 months he spent in pre-trial detention. After serving his sentence, Naumov will be banned from entering Serbia for five years. Cash savings and valuables found during his arrest will also be confiscated, and he will have to pay a fine of 200 thousand dinars (approximately 1.7 thousand euros).
The arrest of Andrei Naumov occurred in June 2022, when Serbian police discovered significant amounts of money and jewelry, including emeralds, in a BMW car driven by a German citizen who was with Naumov. These funds were not declared when crossing the border at the Presevo checkpoint on the border with North Macedonia. The Serbian criminal code provides for penalties of up to 12 years in prison for such crimes.
Earlier, an air raid alert was announced in the Kharkov, Dnepropetrovsk and Poltava regions. More about this read the material Public News Service.
