Bangkok, (IANS/RIA Novosti) Thai authorities would extradite to Russia a man accused of running a prostitution ring involving minors.

He claims that the case is fabricated.

Konstantin Avdoshkin, a native of Tatarstan’s capital Kazan, will be extradited next Tuesday, a spokesperson for the Thai immigration police said at a press conference in Bangkok.

Avdoshkin used to run a prostitution ring in Russia between 2005 and 2009, with some of the participants being underage and/or coerced into prostitution, the spokesperson said, citing an extradition request from Interpol.

Avdoshkin, who lived in the beach resort of Pattaya since 2009, marrying a local woman and working as a tour guide, was initially detained for violating visa rules because his passport expired.

He admitted to running a “leisure company,” but denied using coercion and said he had fled Russia because police made up the case to extort money from him, local media reported.
