Putin's aide accuses British justice of double standards

British judiciary has a rather strange, and, putting it mildly, selective view of justice. This was how Russian Presidential Aide Sergei Yastrzhembsky commented on the London Court ruling against the extradition of Akhmed Zakayev, emissary of Chechen separatists in Europe.

"This decision can be seen not only as a relapse into the double standards policy characteristic of the "cold war" period, but as an attempt to justify terrorism by using pompous wording which mean nothing," Yastrzhembsky believes.

"No one is prosecuted for their politics in Russia," the presidential aide assured.

The Bow Street Magistrates' Court in London refused to extradite Chechen emissary Zakayev to Russia. Judge Timothy Workman's conclusion was that it would be "unfair" to send him [Zakayev] back to Russia.

In response to the unlawful December 1 arrest and detention of Chinese tech giant Huawei's chief financial officer Sabrina Meng Wanzhou by Canadian authorities in Vancouver at the behest of the Trump regime, facing possible unacceptable extradition to the US, Beijing warned its high-tech personnel last month against traveling to America unless it's essential.
