Berezovsky v Abramovitch

Full article: Berezovsky v Abramovitch

In 2011, Boris Berezovsky brought a UK legal case against Abramovitch, claiming that Abramovitch had promised to give him half the profits generated by Sibneft, a Russian oil company. In 2001, he alleged that he was forced to sell his stake in the company because of threats made by Abramovich when Vladimir Putin's government came into power. Jonathan Sumption successfully defended Abramovitch. Katherine Horton attended the proceedings "as part of her systems analysis research into the English legal system" whom she reports began "stalking" her.[2]
