13:16 18/08/2016

MOSCOW, August 18 (RAPSI) – Interpol withdrew Leonid Nevzlin, a former co-owner of YUKOS company, who is wanted in Russia for a number of serious crimes, from its “red notice” list in mid-August, London-based BNE Intelinews reports on Thursday.

Interpol recalled the request from Russia to arrest Nevzlin at a closed meeting of its Commission for the Control of Files, which took place yet on June 29 on the grounds that it was “predominantly political” and recommended the Interpol General Secretariat located in Lyon, France, to “remove all data on the entrepreneur” from the Interpol databases. The Secretariat complied with the recommendation on August 4.

Nevzlin, a long-time partner of Mikhail Khodorkovsky, took citizenship of Israel in 2003 and has been residing in that country since. Russia requested Interpol to put him on the organization’s wanted list in 2005.

In Russia Nevzlin was sentenced in absentia to life imprisonment for masterminding the murder or attempted murder of East Petroleum Handelsgas Executive Manager Yevgeny Rybin, Moscow Government PR Department head Olga Kostina and Rosprom Business Manager Viktor Kolesov. Besides, also in absentia, he was sentenced to 6 years in jail for misappropriation of shares in Tomskneft, VNK, Achinsky Refinery and some other companies.
