Arms Dealer Bout Defense Claims 'New Evidence'

Quote:
Defense lawyers for jailed Russian arms dealer Viktor Bout claim there is new evidence to support their appeal for the case to be reconsidered.

"We have reliable information that representatives of American state agencies exerted pressure, intimidation, and bribery regarding Thai officials who took the decision to extradite Bout to the United States, and that on the basis of these new facts the case should be returned to Judge Scheindlin and canceled," Bout's attorney Albert Dayan told RIA Novosti.

US turns down Bout extradition request

The US Justice Department has turned down Moscow’s request to hand over jailed Russian businessman Viktor Bout so that he can serve out the remainder of his 25-year prison term on home soil.

Bout’s lawyer, Albert Dayan, said on Friday that the Americans had cited the seriousness of the crime and wanted to avoid an undesirable precedent. Dayan said Russia could repeat the request in two years’ time.

Viktor Bout was sentenced by a New York court earlier this year after agreeing to sell arms to US undercover agents posing as Colombian guerrillas allegedly planning to attack American soldiers.

The Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement on Friday that it would press for Bout’s handover in line with the 1983 European Convention on extradition.

Bout’s defense team appeals 25-year prison term

The attorney for Russian businessman Viktor Bout say his conviction was revenge conducted for political or personal reasons and is unprecedented in US history.

Lawyer Albert Dayan told reporters that the 55-page appeal proves his client innocent and demonstrates his extradition from Thailand in 2008, and subsequent 2012 conviction were illegal.

Viktor Bout used to be a successful businessman specializing on cargo transportation. In March 2008 he was arrested in Thailand charged with conspiracy to murder US citizens. Undercover US agents claimed that Bout agreed to supply anti-aircraft missiles to Colombian leftist guerrillas who could potentially use them in attacks on US aircraft.

In April 2012 the Federal Court of New York sentenced the Bout to 25 years in a top security prison.

Arms Dealer Viktor Bout to Get New Defense Team

MOSCOW, April 7 (RIA Novosti) – Russian businessman Viktor Bout, convicted for arms trafficking in the United States, will get a new team of lawyers, his wife Alla said Sunday.

Russian lawyer Alexei Binetsky is already building a new team of lawyers, who will work “in close contact” with Bout’s US lawyer on the case, Albert Dayan, she told RIA Novosti.

“I expect that my husband’s defense will be more efficient, and the case will be revised in view of newly discovered circumstances, and Viktor will be freed,” Alla said.
