MOSCOW, January 23. /ITAR-TASS/. Lawyer of former Menatep CEO Platon Lebedev is unaware whether his client will stay in Russia after release from prison.
Ex-CEO of YUKOS oil company Mikhail Khodorkovsky, who was pardoned by Russian President Vladimir Putin last December, is staying in Germany. Khodorkovsky stated many times that he would return to Russia only if the Supreme Court relieves him from a multibillion claims in the first YUKOS affair. “I do not have any guarantee that I will be able to leave Russia then. The Russian Supreme Court may uphold the verdict passed by the European Court of Human Rights that the lawsuit in the first YUKOS case is dropped from me and my friend Platon Lebedev,” Khodorkovsky said.
Meanwhile, the Supreme Court refused to override Moscow Meshchansky court’s verdict to Mikhail Khodorkovsky and Platon Lebedev, levying 17 billion rubles ($502 million) in damage from them.
