Kazakh refugee status not visible to Italy, says Interpol

Rome, July 24 - Italian authorities could not have
known that an Kazakh dissident had been granted refugee status
by Britain, Interpol said Wednesday.
Member countries within the Interpol organization could see
that Muhtar Ablyazov was wanted for arrest by three governments,
Interpol's Secretary-General Ronald K. Noble said in a letter to
Alessandro Pansa, Italy's national police chief.
But the same countries – including Italy - would not have
had access to files showing the dissident had been granted
status as an asylum seeker in the United Kingdom, the agency
added.
Ablyazov and his family have been at the centre of a
political firestorm in Italy after it became known that his wife
Alma Shalabayeva and their six-year-old daughter were forcibly
removed after a nighttime raid by Italian police, and sent back
to Kazakh in May.
"Consultation by Italy of the databases would never have
revealed that Mr. Ablyazov was granted (refugee) status," said
Interpol.
All they would see would be the three warrants seeking the
dissident's arrest.
Last week, some Italian politicians sought the ouster of
Deputy Premier and Interior Minister Angelino Alfano over the
expulsion of Shalabayeva, and her daughter, who were rushed onto
a private jet with Kazakh diplomats.
They were flown back to a country whose human-rights record
has been questioned by several organizations.
Alfano's chief of staff at the interior ministry resigned
over the scandal and a major inquiry has been called.
