LONDON, May 5 (Itar-Tass) - The funeral of Russian fugitive tycoon Boris Berezovsky, who was found dead in his London residence on March 23, might be postponed from the initially planned date on May 6, since his family wants to keep the ceremony private, Itar-Tass learned on Sunday from a source close to the family.
“There is information that the funeral may not be held tomorrow,” the source said. “Since there is no confirmed information, so far it is highly probable that the funeral will be postponed.”
“It looks like they want to have absolutely closed ceremony,” the source added.
Another source said “it would not be right” to tell the details of the funeral. “The family has banned the subject so none of us is going to speak about it,” the source said and added that the organization of the funeral is up to Berezovsky’s children. “I cannot say where it will take place, nor when, nor who will be present. This is not my policy,” the source said.
So far, it is not known where the former oligarch will be buried. Some say he will be buried at London’s Gunnersbury cemetery, some say it will be in Surrey.
Berezovsky, 67, was found dead by his employee at his Ascot home, Berkshire County, on March 23. The body was lying on the floor of a bathroom locked from the inside. After the autopsy, police said his death was "consistent with hanging" and there was no evidence of a struggle.
