LONDON, July 19 (Itar-Tass) - Russian fugitive oligarch Boris Berezovsky who died in London in March owed 100 million pounds (151 million U.S. dollars) to Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC), local media reported on Friday.

According to media reports, Grant Thornton, which was entrusted to audit Berezovsky’s assets, told the court that the assets the later Russian businessman left after his death are not enough to pay off his debts.

A source in Britain’s lawyer circles told Itar-Tass that as of the day of his death Berezovsky was bankrupt. Moreover, he ran a risk of being put to prison for tax default.

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.
