Paris Open to Mogilevich

PARIS -- A Paris court has lifted a four-year-old police ban against the entry into France of Semyon Mogilevich, a dual Russian-Israeli national whose name has been linked to a multibillion-dollar money-laundering investigation.

Police sources said Thursday that the court recently ordered the ban lifted from Sept. 7 on grounds that the Interior Ministry had failed to provide sufficient evidence to justify it.

Police have the option of appealing the decision.
