The inquiry, most probably, was sent by the Interpol Moscow bureau included in the structure of the Russian interior ministry, and not from the Lyons-based headquarters of this international organisation.
Meanwhile, ten people are wanted under the Yukos case, including major shareholders of this Russian oil company - Leonid Nevzlin, Vladimir Dubov and Mikhail Brudno, first deputy prosecutor general Yuri Biryukov told journalists.
He added that they have been put on the wanted list with court approval and are charged with tax avoidance and several other crimes.
Leonid Nevzlin is accused of embezzlement of property entrusted to him, specified Biryukov. He is also accused of misappropriating the shares of the Tomskneft oil company (Siberia) and of Achinsk Refinery owned by the Eastern Oil Company. The sum of damage is estimated at $39 million said Biryukov. Nevzlin is also accused of personal tax avoidance to the tune of 26.7 million roubles (one dollar equals approximately 28 roubles).
Former State Duma deputy Vladimir Dubov is accused of embezzling budgetary funds issued to the Volgograd Region (the Volga area) for the construction of housing for military servicemen. The overall damage done is estimated at 76 billion roubles.
Another YUKOS co-owner, Mikhail Brudno misappropriated returns from the sale of apatite concentrate to the tune of $2.8 million, which belonged to the Apatit joint-stock company.
