    MOSCOW, January 21, 2003 (RIA Novosti) - The Interpol National Central Bureau (NCB) in Russia has forwarded documents to the Interpol Secretariat General based in Lyon, France, requesting it to put Leonid Nevzlin, co-owner of the YUKOS oil major, on the international wanted list, a law-enforcement source told RIA Novosti.

    "Nevzlin has been placed on the international wanted list. The Prosecutor General's Office provided the necessary documents to the NCB on Friday evening," said the source.

    Under Russian law, criminal prosecution papers have to be furnished to place a person on the international wanted list, explained the source.

    "Under Russian law and in line with the Interpol charter, a court must issue an arrest and subsequent extradition warrants, and a document on charges that have been brought up against a person to place him/her on the Interpol list," said the source.

    On January 16 2004, the required documents were sent to the Interpol Secretariat General, which has not as of yet responded, added the source.
