The Montenegrin authorities have rejected Russia’s request for the extradition of the former head of Rosalkogolregulirovanie Igor Chuyan, who was detained in this country in October 2021. This was told by an informed source in the central office of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation.

How writes On Friday, November 11, Kommersant, the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Montenegro granted the request of Chuyan and his lawyers for political asylum, refusing to extradite the detained businessman to Russia for this reason.

Official confirmation of this information has not yet been received.

Igor Chuyan has been in charge of the Federal Service for Alcohol Market Regulation (Rosalkogolregulirovanie) since 2008. In July 2018, Chuyan was dismissed from this position with the wording “of his own free will.” In December of the same year, he became a defendant in a criminal case on abuse of power.

Chuyan was put on the international wanted list. In 2021, he was detained in Tivat. By decision of a judge of the highest court in Podgorica, a preventive measure was chosen for the ex-head of Rosalkogolregulirovanie in the form of detention.
