Businessman German Sterligov who was detained at Moscow’s Domodedovo airport on Monday has been released, his lawyer Artur Airapetov told TASS.
“Sterligov was released after talking to the law enforcers. He is fine,” the lawyer said.
Businessman German Sterligov was detained at Moscow’s Domodedovo airport upon his arrival from Yerevan, Armenia, on Monday evening. According to Airapetov, his client stayed at the airport all the time after the detention.
He said Sterligov had been detained due to the fact that Azerbaijan had initiated criminal proceedings against the businessman and had put his name on the CIS inter-state wanted list.
The airport’s border guards told TASS that Sterligov was detained when crossing the Russian state border.
