Dmitry Berezhkov was freed from custody Saturday after having spent two days in the county jail of Nord-Troms, Northern Norway.
The court found the conditions for extraditing Berezhkov to Russia were not fulfilled, his lawyer informed the local newspaper Nordlyset.
Berezhkov is former Vice-President of the Russian Association of Indigenous Peoples of the North (RAIPON). A couple of years ago, however, he moved with his family to Northern Norway to avoid persecution, some commentators are convinced, by the Russian authorities.
