BELGRADE, August 20 (Itar-Tass) - Serbia's Justice Ministry said it has not received any notifications from the court regarding the arrest of property belonging to the deceased Russian business tycoon Boris Berezovsky.
"The Justice Ministry's directorate for arrested assets has not received the court ruling on the arrest of Boris Berezovsky's property," a representative of the Justice Ministry's press service told Itar-Tass.
The Justice Ministry first heard this news from mass media representatives as they began to phone to the press service, she added.
On Tuesday, Russian Deputy Prosecutor General Alexander Zvyagintsev told reporters that a Serbian court had arrested Berezovsky's property, which is worth around nine billion roubles ($300 million), at Russia's demand.
"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.
The B-92 information portal, citing prosecutors, said the decision to freeze Berezovsky's assets was made by Belgrade's Supreme Court on July 11.
