Interpol may reconsider its refusal to put former oligarch Mikhail Khodorkovsky on the international wanted list and has already asked for additional materials on the murder case in which he is a suspect, a source in the agency has said.

“Interpol has made a statement that it’s ready to reconsider its position on adding to the international wanted list the former head of YUKOS oil company, Mikhail Khodorkovsky, who’s now facing charges of complicity in the assassination of the mayor of [Siberian city of] Neftyugansk, ” an unnamed source “acquainted with the situation” told Interfax.

The source added that the changes in Interpol policy took place after talks between the international police organization and Russian representatives in Lyon a short time ago.

Khodorkovsky’s press secretary Kulle Pispanen told reporters that she was not aware of Interpol’s intention to reconsider issuing a search notice on her client. She went on to attack the report as a deliberate hoax and said that the only information worth noticing should be coming not from sources, but from Interpol itself.

The Russian branch of Interpol declared Khodorkovsky ‘wanted’ in February this year after local law enforcers reopened the case into the killing of murder of Vladimir Petukhov – the mayor of Neftyugansk, who came into conflict with Yukos stakeholders and managers, and was killed on June 26, 1998, Khodorkovsky’s 35th birthday.
