ASTANA, August 1 (Itar-Tass) - The Kazakh Prosecutor General’s Office has received a notification from the French Interpol Bureau over the detention of former banker Mukhtar Ablyazov, who is on the wanted list of Kazakh law enforcement agencies. This was reported by the press service of the Kazakh Prosecutor General’s Office on Thursday.
“On July 31, 2013, the French Interpol Bureau reported about the detention of Mukhtar Kabulovich Ablyazov in France,” the press service said.
“According to available reports, the French law enforcers did not provide more details about the detention of Mukhtar Ablyazov, as long as the Prosecutor General’s Office of the Republic of Kazakhstan will be informed further,” the press release said.
The Kazakh law enforcement agencies continue the investigation of criminal cases over the formation and control over an organized criminal group, which committed the misappropriation from the Kazakh Bank BTA to the tune of over $5 billion and money laundering.
In March 2009, according to the criminal cases former chairman of the board of directors of the bank Ablyazov was put on the international wanted list. Meanwhile, on the accusations for committing several crimes the former banker was put on the wanted list by the law enforcement agencies in Russia and Ukraine.
In February 2012, the High Court of London ruled to sentence Ablyazov to 22 months in prison for disrespect to the court, but he escaped British justice.
