PARIS - At request of the Ukrainian authorities, Red Notices have been issued for four individuals including former President Vicktor Yanukovych and Prime Minister Mykola Azarov, said INTERPOL in a press release Monday.
Followed by a thorough review by INTERPOL's Office of Legal Affairs to ensure that Ukraine's request for the notices was in compliance with the Organization's rules and regulations, the Red Notices were issued Monday for charges including embezzlement and misappropriation.
"These Red Notices are not connected to a previous request made by Ukraine in March 2014 for a Red Notice to be issued for Vicktor Yanukovych on charges including abuse of power and murder," affirmed INTERPOL, the world's largest international police organization, adding that the previous request was assessed by it as "not compliant" with its rules and regulations and was refused.
