#AceFinanceNews – ROME – April 19 – The Italian authorities have granted the refugee status to the wife of Kazkhstan’s big business tycoon Mukhtar Ablyazov – Alma Shalabayeva – and her under-age daughter.

The decision was made by a special commission for international protection under the country’s Interior Ministry.

Shalabayeva and her little daughter were expelled from Italy on the 30th of last May after police held an operation at a villa near Rome in an attempt to arrest Ablyazov, whose name features on Interpol’s wanted list.

He is wanted in Kazakhstan, Russia and Ukraine for gross embezzlement.
