The Prosecutor General’s Office of the Russian Federation insists that Interpol should again declare William Browder, the head of Hermitage Capital, the international wanted list. RIA News message of the press service of the supervisory authority.

The Prosecutor General’s Office recalled that “the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs in June sent a request to re-declare Browder on the international search via Interpol, which, in turn, refused to search for the head of Hermitage Capital, referring to its previous decision”.

Disagreeing with this legal position, the Prosecutor General’s Office of Russia sent its objections to Interpol, insisting that Browder be put on the international wanted list,
says release.

In July, it was reported that the Russian tax service filed a claim for compensation of more than 3 billion rubles in a criminal case against the founder of Hermitage Capital.

The agency clarifies that “Russia's previous attempts to request Interpol to extradite Browder were unsuccessful because of public discontent with using the international police network for political purposes.” The publication adds that the election in November of last year, Major-General of Police Alexander Prokopchuk, Vice-President of Interpol "can help Moscow advance the case."

In the summer of 2013, a Russian court sentenced Browder in absentia to 9 years in prison. The court found that Magnitsky in the interests of the head of Hermitage Capital Management “in 1997-2002 developed and implemented an illegal tax evasion scheme. In 2014, Russia put Browder on the international wanted list. ”

      It is a pity that Berezovsky was so strangely strangled by a scarf. Maybe he would tell how the tranche of 3 lard from the IMF suddenly turned into 860 lyam, what EBN lamented: "well, we will sort it out"

    “Russia's previous attempts to request Interpol to extradite Browder have not been successful due to public discontent over the use of the international police network for political purposes.” And now you think they will be crowned? And what kind of "public discontent" is this, what kind of pressure can there be on "dermocratic institutions"?

      It was good in this regard in the USSR - neither the services of Interpol, nor the “guard leaves”, nor the mockeries of the Western special services .... It was all simple: they found the little man themselves, returned them to the Union by diplomatic mail, and in the last resort used other , more radical methods ........

      He was not lost, you simply cannot deliver a citizen of another country to Russia to bring a sentence. Although here you need to learn from the Americans. Without a twinge of conscience, practically from any country they can extract to the United States and even use their special services on foreign territory.

    Notify this Bruder through our Sputnik and RT so that he surrenders to the mercy of our court within a week. And in case of failure to appear in a month to report his successful loss. And ask which of the foreign swindlers wishes the fate of Bruder.
