MINSK, October 2 (Itar-Tass) - Minsk has not received an Interpol notification refusing to issue red notice for Suleiman Kerimov, the principal shareholder of potassium fertilizers producer Uralkali and several top managers of the company, Belarusian Interior Minister Igor Shunevich told reporters on Wednesday.
"We've received a notification, but of another kind," he said. The inquiry and information regarding the search for the persons in question is in a database. The procedure to finalize the issue requires a decision by an Interpol commission, Shunevich said noting that no such decision had been made yet.
After Uralkali's July 30 announcement about the termination of exports through the Belarusian Potassium Company, a joint venture of Uralkali and the Belaruskali state-owned enterprise, Uralkali Director General Vladislav Baumgertner was detained in Minsk following his talks with Belarusian Prime Minister Mikhail Myasnikovich. He was taken in custody within the probe into the criminal cases opened by Belarusian prosecutors.
Lukashenko earlier stated that he did not rule out handing over Baumgertner to Russia provided Russian police continued the probe into the case under the charges brought against the top manager.
