Yeltsin Aide Returns to Face Indictment

April 08, 2001|From Times Wire Reports

A top aide to former Russian President Boris N. Yeltsin was indicted on charges of money laundering and membership in a criminal organization, capping more than two years of investigations by Swiss justice officials.

Pavel Borodin was formally charged by Swiss authorities in Geneva just hours after police escorted him off a flight from New York.

Borodin, 54, was arrested on a Swiss warrant Jan. 17 in New York and agreed Monday to be flown to Switzerland rather than face a lengthy extradition battle from his U.S. prison cell.
