MOSCOW, March 26 (Itar-Tass) – Lawyer Alexander Dobrovinsky has said that he has never represented the interests of Roman Abramovich and does not know whether the businessman has been questioned by the FBI.
"I am not and I have never been Abramovich’s lawyer,” Dobrovinsky told Itar-Tass.
Dobrovinsky explained that he knew from his own sources, which he did not want to disclose, that the FBI was showing interest in whether some facts of corruption had taken place when Russia was chosen as the venue for the 2018 World Football Cup and wanted to question Abramovich in this connection.
"I am not absolutely sure whether he has been questioned or not. The only thing I know is that the lawyers of Roman Abramovich were involved in negotiations on that subject, “Dobrovinsky said, commenting on recent media reports that the Russian businessman had allegedly been detained by the U.S. security services. However, further reports said, citing Dobrovinsky as Abramovich’s lawyer, that the tycoon was not detained but only questioned by the FBI.
