Investigative Committee in search for 'reliable' information on Khodorkovsky’s whereabouts
Investigators continue to solve the criminal case of the murder of Nefteyugansk Mayor, the Ministry reported.
The Investigative Committee of Russia is considering the issue of Mikhail Khodorkovsky’s extradition. To do this, the investigators are conducting operational search activities to obtain "reliable information" about its whereabouts, RIA Novosti reported with reference to Investigative Committee spokesperson Svetlana Petrenko.
She specified that the investigation "on Mikhail Khodorkovsky’s charges of committing grave crimes related to the murder of Nefteyugansk Mayor Vladimir Petukhov and attempted murder of East Petroleum HandelsGes mbH manager Yevgeny Rybin" remains ongoing. According to the investigation, in the 1990s, the Yukos CEO masterminded the murders of Petukhov and Rybin, as their activities were contrary to the company’s interests. Late in December 2015, Khodorkovsky was arrested in absentia and declared internationally wanted by the Moscow Basmanny Court.
Earlier, the Prosecutor General's Office of Russia reported that it was going to use every tool and procedure to declare the former Yukos CEO wanted by Interpol. However, on February 12, 2016, Russia's request was rejected. Then in October 2016, Interpol said that it was ready to reconsider the issue.
We should remind that in 2013, Khodorkovsky was pardoned by Russian President and flew off to Germany. Then he went to Switzerland, and in 2015 he left for the UK.
