Kazakh banker Ablyazov’s wife and daughter may leave Kazakhstan

Alma Shalabayeva, wife of BTA-Bank ex-Head Mukhtar Ablyazov, and her daughter have been granted permission to leave Kazakhstan, Gazeta.ru reports.

Shalabayeva thanked Italian Foreign Minister Emma Bonino for support.

Shalabayeva and her daughter were deported from Italy to Kazakhstan in late May 2013. The UN Committee for Human Rights said that it aggravated relations between Italy and Kazakhstan.

Ablyazov, who is suspected of fraud, remains detained in France. Both Kazakhstan and Russia demand his extradition.
