“The statement did not give a date for the planned extradition, nor the precise allegations faced by the Russian citizen, who was arrested in Israel in 2015.” states the AFP press.
The suspect was arrested in Israel in 2015, his case made the headlines multiple times because media speculated a possible prisoner swap with Naama Issachar, an Israeli-American that was arrested in Russia on cannabis charges.
According to the media, the Naama Issachar’s family is opposing the extradition for the above reason.
Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu also commented the case and told to the media that he “would appreciate” Russian President Vladimir Putin looking into Naama Issachar’s case.
