ASTANA, February 21 (Itar-Tass) — Former vice-president of Kazakhstan’s Kazatomprom national nuclear company Rustem Tursunbayev was arrested in Canada. Tursunbayev has been wanted by Interpol, the press service of the National Security Committee /KNB/ reported on Tuesday.
"Tursunbayev was arrested by Canadian law-enforcement agents for a violation of the immigration legislation," the press service said, adding that no details of the arrest can be given, because "divulging them contradicts the interests of the investigation."
In Kazakhstan, the former vice-president of national nuclear company is accused of setting up an organizing and leading a criminal group, corporate tax evasion, forgery and use of fake documents, squandering of other's property in "especially large amount," and money laundering.
