KIEV, July 21. /TASS/. The International Criminal Police Organization, Interpol, has temporarily restricted access to former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych’s file, Ukrainian Interior Ministry’s press service said on Tuesday, citing Interpol’s Kiev bureau.
The measure was taken in response after Yanukovych and his lawyers filed a petition stating the former Ukrainian president should be removed from the wanted list. The case will be reviewed at the next session of the Commission for the Control of Interpol’s Files in September.
Yanukovych appealed his inclusion in Interpol’s wanted list in the Commission and at a court in France’s Lyon.
Joseph Hage Aaronson law firm said earlier on Tuesday that Interpol halted search for Ukraine’s former president Viktor Yanukovych. "Yanukovych is no longer on the wanted list," lawyers representing the Yanukovych family said in a statement.
Interpol cancelled halted search for Yanukovych and withdrew his name from the wanted list after lawyers filed a petition stating that the case against former Ukrainian president is politically motivated.
Interpol put Ukraine's ousted president Viktor Yanukovych on wanted list in January on suspicion of embezzlement and misappropriation in huge amounts as part of a criminal group. Interpol issued the Red Notice for Yanukovych. The Red Notice is the instrument to seek the location and arrest of a wanted person with a view to his/her extradition.
