List of arrested property pieces of oligarch Boris Mints made public
The arrest was imposed on a Scotland castle and several estates in England, as well as a high-rise in Israel.
A full list of property items of businessman Boris Mints, the lawsuit against whom was filed by Trust Bank, appeared in the media. They were arrested by the decision of the High Court of London. Restrictive measures have been imposed on property worth $ 572 million, according to Open Media.
The list includes 140 objects and companies scattered throughout the world. Thus, the arrest was imposed on three estates and four hotels of the oligarch's family, located in the UK. A residential 15-story high-rise in Israel, 21 property pieces in Russia and 92 offshore companies of various jurisdictions, as well as 15 Russian companies were also seized.
Among the exotic objects in the list is the Tower of Lethendy in Scotland, in the purchase of which Taylor Swift was interested several years ago. According to the description in open sources, the castle has eight bedrooms, seven bathrooms and a swimming pool. Also nearby are a tennis court and a golf course. Three years ago, the castle cost about £ 4.6 million.
When it comes to Russia, more than five Moscow apartments and several non-residential premises, as well as land plots in the Moscow region belonging to the Mints family were arrested. It is noteworthy that some of them, the most expensive ones, officially, do not belong to the family of the businessman.
This reduces the chances of the plaintiff to pay damages at the expense of this property, provided that he wins the trial, the newspaper notes.
As The CrimeRussia wrote, Trust Bank filed a lawsuit against the Mints family for more than $ 700 million at the end of June. Soon, the credit institution achieved security measures for the property of the entrepreneur's family. The claims were related to fraudulent transactions by O1 Group Finance, which was controlled by Mints. Mints's lawyers are trying to challenge the restrictive measures in court.
