Protection of Russian citizen Konstantin Yaroshenko condemned in the USA, has no official information about a possible review of his case in April 2019, but we can talk about considering a third application for transfer in accordance with the Council of Europe Convention on the transfer of sentenced persons, said Wednesday RIA Novosti his lawyer Alexei Tarasov.

Previously, the newspaper «Izvestia» with reference to the Advisor of the Commissioner for human rights in the Russian Federation Vyacheslav Tolmachev said that the case of Yaroshenko, who is serving a sentence in an American prison, can review in April 2019. According to Tolmachev, in accordance with the Council of Europe Convention on the transfer of sentenced persons, which is a member of the United States, there is the possibility of transferring Yaroshenko to Russia to serve his term in Russia.

«It is likely two years with a previous request. A two-year term expires in April 2019. That is, the date logical. We welcome this step and hope that the third time because Yaroshenko twice before refused the transfer, after all, his case is resolved favorably,» he said.

He noted that this is not reconsider the case, but a consideration of the application on the transfer in accordance with the Convention.

«Application may be submitted by either the citizen or the state. In the case of Yaroshenko, suppose that the application submits the state itself», — the lawyer added.

Pilot Yaroshenko was convicted in the United States in 2011 to 20 years in prison on charges in the preparation of the conspiracy to commit delivery of large quantities of drugs into U.S. territory. In the US, the Russian was taken from Liberia, where he was arrested in late may 2010. In April 2016, the court of appeals of new York denied Yaroshenko in the revision of the sentence. The appeal to the Supreme court of the United States Yaroshenko refused.
