The alleged Russian mafia boss accused of bribing judges at the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics is living the good life in Moscow with little fear of retribution.

Alimzhan Tokhtakhounov, according to ABC News, is being protected by Russian authorities despite an Interpol arrest warrant, said the FBI.

Tokhtakhounov, 65, was indicted in 2002 by a federal grand jury in New York for attempting to fix the pairs figure skating competition in what is considered one of the worst Olympic scandals ever.
