MOSCOW, November 2 - RAPSI. Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich is to continue to testify on Wednesday upon the lawsuit brought against him by his former business partner Boris Berezovsky in London High Court of Justice. Russian Legal Information Agency (RAPSI) will broadcast the third day of Abramovich’s testimony on Twitter at 14.15 Moscow time (10:15 GMT).
The court began hearing Berezovsky's $5.5 billion lawsuit against Abramovich on October 3. Berezovsky seeks compensation for assets he was forced to sell to Abramovich between 2000 and 2003.
Berezovsky claims in his lawsuit that Abramovich intimidated him and his business partner Badri Patarkatsishvili into selling a number of assets, including a 43-percent interest in the Sibneft oil company and a stake in the Rusal aluminum group, at a fraction of their value.
