GENEVA, December 24, /ITAR-TASS/. A pardoned oil tycoon and the former YUKOS chief, Mikhail Khodorkovsky, has applied for a three-month Schengen visa to Switzerland to the Swiss embassy in Berlin, the Swiss Foreign Ministry reported on Monday, according to AFP.
“Mikhail Khodorkovsky applied for a three-month Schengen visa to the Swiss embassy in Berlin on December 24,” the Swiss Foreign Ministry said in a report issued on Tuesday.
“The embassy accepted the application. It is staying in contact with the Federal Migration Department in Berne,” the Swiss Foreign Ministry said. Its representatives added that the question was confidential and that no additional information would be available until a decision was made.
The Swiss Foreign Ministry did not specify why Khodorkovsky needed a Schengen visa if he already had a 12-month visa to Germany.
“His lawyer has submitted a visa application and we are considering the request,” the Ministry said.
