MOSCOW, January 26 (RAPSI) – Italy aims to extradite to Russia Dmitry Bezdelov, former head of the Federal Border Development Agency who has been accused in embezzlement case, Kommersant newspaper reported on Tuesday.

Italy's court of appeals upheld in October the decision to extradite Bezdelov to Russia. The Supreme Court has reportedly left the judgment intact.

Bezdelov resigned from his post in October 2013 after a probe revealed inappropriate use of budget funds by the agency. 

He was accused of unauthorized transferring about one billion rubles (about $13 million) to the Agrosoyuz bank whose main beneficiary by that time was his father, according to Kommersant.

Bezdelov was arrested in Rome in October 2014 after he had been put on the international wanted list.
