MOSCOW, August 20 (Itar-Tass) - A Serbian court arrested the property belonging to the diseased business tycoon Boris Berezovsky, which is worth around nine billion rubles ($300 million), Deputy Prosecutor General Alexander Zvyagintsev told reporters on Tuesday.
"I learnt yesterday that this property had been arrested under a Serbian court ruling at our demand," Zvyagintsev said, adding that seven companies belonging to the oligarch had been arrested.
Previously Russian bailiffs made similar arrests. Boris Berezovsky’s property located on the territory of the Russian Federation was arrested late July. The Service has not identified what property was arrested or its worth, adding that "legally he is not the owner; according to the paperwork he was a beneficiary and had incorporeal hereditament rights." Representatives of the Bailiff service also stated that since initiating enforcement proceeding in 2008, 300 million rubles of debt have been recovered.
Boris Berezovsky also owed 100 million pounds (151 million U.S. dollars) to Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC), local media reported in July.
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. He was buried at Brookwood Cemetery in Surrey County on Wednesday, May 8.
