All Northern Cyprus police forces were involved in the search for the refugee, drones, helicopters and service dogs were used. Eyewitnesses have seen Satlajeva several times in local mountains and villages, but the police have not been able to detain him.
A cave was found with the dogs in the mountains where he had slept. Local media report that he moved at night but slept in hiding during the day.
The refugee was finally detained on the night of February 12, when he tried to enter an empty house.
Until 2013, Satlaev worked on the Russian Committee of Inquiry in the Altai Republic. He was fired after he was charged with rape. In 2015, he was sentenced to six years in prison for four rapes and seven assaults.
In one of the rapes, the investigation was originally entrusted to him. He then persuaded the victim to refuse to testify and made an illegal decision to refuse to prosecute.
In 2019, the court agreed to parole him prematurely. He was released in March, but was already pronounced in August in search of the rape of a woman in Barnaul. However, he managed to leave Russia and get to Northern Cyprus via Turkey.
Russia does not have an extradition treaty with Northern Cyprus because Moscow does not recognize Northern Cyprus as a state.
