You're reading: Abramovich beats ‘dishonest’ Berezovsky in court

Berezovsky, who became a Moscow powerbroker under the late
President Boris Yeltsin only to fall foul of Vladimir Putin, had
accused Abramovich of using the threat of Kremlin retribution to
intimidate him into selling prize assets at a knockdown price.

But Judge Elizabeth Gloster told a packed London courtroom
that she had found Berezovsky to be an “unimpressive and
inherently unreliable witness” who gave sometimes dishonest
evidence and would say “almost anything to support his case”.

Gloster dismissed all of Berezovsky’s $6 billion in claims
in one of the biggest private litigation cases ever, saying
Abramovich – the world’s 68th richest man with a $12.1 billion
fortune – was a “truthful and on the whole reliable witness”.
