Muhiddin Kabiri, leader of Tajikistan's banned opposition Islamic Renaissance Party (IRPT), has been added to Interpol’s wanted list on Dushanbe's request.
The Interpol website says Kabiri is wanted by Tajik authorities for alleged terrorism, fraud and organization of a criminal group.
In June, a court in Dushanbe sentenced the IRPT's deputy heads to life imprisonment and 12 other leading members of the party to prison terms of between two and 28 years on charges of conspiring with former Defense Minister Abduhalim Nazarzoda in a supposed armed bid to seize power in early September 2015.
Later that month, Tajikistan's Supreme Court added the party to a black list of extremist and terrorist organizations and banned it.
Kabiri, 51, who now lives in exile in an undisclosed country, has called charges against him and his associates politically motivated.
