Interpol did not cancel the search for Timoshenko but just interrupted

General Secretariat of Interpol in Lyons decided to interrupt an international search called for Timoshenko.

"This decision was accepted due to the norms of international right. Such mechanism is applied to state leaders, who enjoy immunity", – the head of National central bureau of Interpol in Russia, Timur Lakhonin, reported to "Interfax" agency.

"The more exact wording is interruption of search in connection with a political status of a wanted person. It means that the search will be recalled if Timoshenko looses her political status", – Lakhonin explained.

He reminded that General Prosecution of Russian Federation, as an initiator of the search, does not consider this case closed. "All necessary documents and orders for search and arrest Timoshenko are still kept in informational systems of Interpol", – Lakhonin added.
