MINSK, September 2 (Itar-Tass) - The Belarusian Investigative Committee is prosecuting a major Uralkali stockholder Suleiman Kerimov as a defendant in the criminal case, which is being investigated against the officials in the closed joint stock Belarusian Potash Company, an official of the Belarusian Investigative Committee said on Monday.
The Belarusian Investigative Committee “decided on a measure of restraint of putting him under arrest and he was put on the Interpol wanted list.”
The Investigative Committee emphasized that Kerimov’s actions are classified by the investigation as abuse of office; the maximum sentence for this crime is a jail term of up to 10 years with confiscation of property. Moreover, the Investigative Committee noted that apart from discovered instances of inflicting damages upon the Belarusian side, the investigation uncovered other activity which caused significant damage to Russia and are classified as crimes under Russian law.
“In this regard the Investigative Committee is analyzing aforementioned materials in order to submit them to Russia’s Prosecutor General’s Office,” the spokesperson said, adding that Belarusian law enforcements are prepared to assist to Russia’s Prosecution in investigating the incident, including looking into information suggesting Kerimov’s possible links with criminal groups in the Caucuses region.
