Turkey ‘extradites two Russian spies in exchange for two Crimean Tatar politicians’
Coming to Turkey: Would that their names were 'Gülen'
and 'Zarrab'...
Turkey has extradited two Russian spies in exchange for two
Crimean Tatar politicians jailed in Russia, daily Habertürk 
reported on Nov. 29.
Aleksandr Smirnov and Lurii Anisimov, who were arrested last
year in relation to the killing of Chechen commander Vahid 
Edelgiriev in Istanbul, were extradited to Moscow as Ilmi Umerov
 and Ahtem Chiygoz were released and sent to Turkey.
According to reports, Edelgireyev was shot and stabbed by 
assassins using a white car on Nov. 1, 2015, in the Kayaşehir
district of Istanbul.
In response to the assassination, units from Turkey’s National
Intelligence Agency (MIT), together with the police, carried out
Operation “Kama” in April 2016, which culminated with the 
arrests of Smirnov, 55, and Anisimov, 52, over their suspected
involvement in the murder.
According to the indictment prepared in February, the two 
Russian spies were part of a “lead unit” responsible for killing
 seven Chechens between 2000 and 2015.
The suspects were accused of “attempting to obtain secret state
information for political or military espionage purposes,” 
“helping in voluntary manslaughter” and “forgery of official 
documents” in the indictment, which also claimed that the 
Russians provided logistical and technical support to the hitmen.
While the indictment revealed Russian links to fugitive hitmen,
 both spies denied the charges against them.
During a hearing of the case on Oct. 24, a significant 
development took place when the court received notices sent
by Istanbul Chief Public Prosecutor’s Office’s Terror and 
Organized Crime Bureau and Justice Ministry’s International
Law and Foreign Relations.
The prosecutor subsequently demanded the release of Anisimov
and Smirnov based on a recent change made to article 26 of MİT
law, following the state of emergency decree.
According to the decree, published in the Official Gazette on 
Aug. 15, extraditions or exchanges between countries are 
permissible in cases concerning national security and the 
country’s interests if they are demanded by the foreign or 
justice ministries or the president.
On the strength of this amendment, the Russian agents were 
released and extradited to Russia, which was followed by the 
release of jailed Crimean Tatar politicians Umerov and Chiygoz.
Last month, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko thanked 
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan for his role in helping
free the pair in a Twitter post.
Umerov, deputy head of the Crimean Tatars’ semi-official 
Mejlis legislature before it was suspended by Moscow, was 
sentenced by a Russian court to two years in jail for 
Chiygoz, another Crimean Tatar leader, was sentenced 
at the same time to eight years for stirring up anti-Russian
