Poor Boris Berezovsky2012-01-25 20:34
Boris Berezovsky gave High Court in London some more work. His new opponent, followed by Roman Abramovich, will be ... the late Badri Patarkatsishvili. Berezovsky claims that deceased Georgian billionaire bequeathed him half of its assets. Boris Abramovich has only one, but "iron" argument - an oral agreement between business partners.
Recently, the name of Boris Berezovsky is flashing in news bulletins with alarming frequency. Having left the native land, disgraced oligarch is suing with everyone. While the decision on Berezovsky's lawsuit against Roman Abramovich has not yet been publicized, Berezovsky decided to enrich himself at the expense of his deceased business partner - Badri Patarkatsishvili.
Berezovsky insists that back in 1995 they signed an informal and not documented agreement on dividing the property equally. The total cost of Berezovsky's claims to Patarkatsishvili amounts to $ 3 billion. According to Berezovsky's lawyers, leaving Russia, he "was forced" to give all his wealth to Patarkatsishvili under the threaten of "expropriation by the Kremlin". Now, three years after the death of Georgian partner, Berezovsky, wants justice. However, judging from the documents of the case that got available to the press, Patrakatsishvili's relatives argue that any agreements of the deceased breadwinner with the Russian oligarch were informal.
The history of partnership between Berezovsky and Patarkatsishvili began 20 years ago. In 1992, the latter moved from Tbilisi to Moscow and worked in a company for selling cars, owned by Boris Abramovich at that time. Over time, the Russian businessman began to trust "sociable Georgians", as The Times characterized him, such serious matters as the management of financial affairs. Patarkatsishvili became even co-investor of the Sibneft. At least, Berezovsky said this. Over the years the business of the two entrepreneurs has already included a lot of different projects - gold mines and oil fields, media assets and commercial property from Central Asia to South America. Partners even owned a poultry farm.
In 2006, the ways of Berezovsky and Patarkatsishvili have parted. The environment of the Georgian businessman were talking, that public statements by his companion against the president of Russia provoked "some discomfort" for Badri. By that time, Boris Berezovsky, who moved to Britain and received political refugee status, was constantly insulting Vladimir Putin. But to ensure his "political activity" not to harm his holdings, he has allegedly transferred all his assets to "the closest and most trusted business partner in life". Berezovsky once called his Georgian friend this way.
Patarkatsishvili died on February 12, 2008 in his villa near London. The cause of death of billionaire, according to the doctors, was coronary heart disease. A few months before his death, the businessman announced his candidacy for presidential elections, which Saakashvili won. According to ex-President Eduard Shevardnadze, the billionaire probably was killed. "Nobody really knows the cause of death of Patarkatsishvili. Some believe that the cause of his death was a heart attack, while others say he was killed. I think the second option is true", Shevardnadze suggested few years ago.
