Media’s Gusinsky arrested in Spain

Russian authorities to extradite exec over $212.8 mil dispute

MADRID — The battle between the Russian government and Media-Most topper Vladimir Gusinsky took a new turn late Monday when Gusinsky was arrested in San Roque in southern Spain.

Deputy prosecutor Vladimir Kolmogorov issued the international arrest warrant Nov. 20 after accusing the Russian magnate of fraud and embezzlement.

Russian authorities, who are preparing an extradition order, maintain that Gusinsky has some $212.8 million from a loan made to him by natural resources giant Gazprom in a foreign bank account.

Spain and Russia have no bilateral extradition treaty, although both belong to the Council of Europe and share its extradition codes.

Media-Most sources and Western intelligentsia argue that Gusinsky, who fled to Spain in June, is being hounded for his frequent and bold criticism of President Vladimir Putin’s authoritarian regime through his NTV TV network.

Gusinsky is being questioned by liberal Spanish judge Baltasar Garzon, who filed the extradition request against ex-Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet.
