MOSCOW, September 11 (Itar-Tass) - The general secretariat of Interpol is still in the process of considering a request from Belarus for putting big business tycoon Suleiman Kerimov and other senior figures in the Belarussian Potassium Company on an international wanted list. No decision has been made so far, Interpol said in a statement.
It was previously reported that that The Belarusian Investigative Committee “decided on a measure of restraint of putting Kerimov under arrest and he was put on the Interpol wanted list.”
The Investigation Committee of Belarus initiated criminal proceedings on charges of power abuse and official misconduct against another four top officials of the Belarusian Potash Company, including Oleg Petrov, a supervisory board member; Konstantin Solodovnikov, the company’s first deputy general director; Igor Yevstratov, the deputy general director for finance; Dmitry Samoilov, the head of the freight department. Both the Belarusian police and Interpol put them on their wanted lists.
All of them, including Vladislav Baumgertner, are accused of official misconduct which significantly damaged the state and public interests of Belarus, the Belaruskaliy open joint-stock company and the Belarusian Potash Company.
