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."
