London may freeze assets of billionaire Akhmedov following dispute with ex-spouse

British court may freeze assets of a Russian businessman Farkhad Akhmedov, as he refused to pay 450 million pounds to his ex-spouse, reports RIA Novosti with reference to Daily Mail.
In 2016, the court ordered the businessman to give 41.5 per cent of his fortune (around 450 million pounds) to his ex-spouse. However she only received 5 million pounds from him.
Judge Gwyneth Knowls says that Akhmedova filed papers in the court to freeze assets of her ex-husband. At the present time, the judge is working on this possibility. Knowls noted that despite the fact that Akhmedova’s statement about the “equal contribution to acquired property” is doubtful, the spoused contrubuted equally to the well-being of the family.
According to the news agency, the amount worth of 450 million pounds is likely to become the highest in the territory of England and Wales.
Earlier, it became known that Akhmedov filed a lawsuit against his ex-wife Tatiana and a company Burford Capital that backs her with the Dubai court. The total value of the lawsuit is $115 million. Akhmedov estimates his financial losses and mental anguish after his yacht Luna had been arrested for 13 months.
