    MOSCOW, July 5 (RIA Novosti) - The Prosecutor General's Office sent new materials on the case of Yukos shareholder Leonid Nevzlin to Interpol Tuesday.

    Deputy Prosecutor General Vladimir Kolesnikov said that Nevzlin was facing new charges, including murder and attempted murder.

    Yukos' former head of security, Alexei Pichugin, faces similar charges, he added.

    Kolesnikov did not specify whether the materials had been sent to Israel, where Nevzlin lives.

    "The Prosecutor General's Office hopes that Nevzlin will be extradited to Russia and receive the punishment his crimes deserve," he said adding that extra materials regarding the charges against Nevzlin had been sent on June 16.
