Russian billionaire Akhmedov uses Interpol’s help to avoid paying $585mn to ex-wife
The international organization reported that they are investigating into the claims of Akhmedov and his lawyers about his wife’s misappropriation of assets as a result of fraud.
Russian billionaire Farkhad Akhmedov continues to take new steps to avoid transferring a significant part of his fortune to his former wife Tatyana. Now the rich man’s lawyers have attracted Interpol to the proceedings to prove that their client had long divorced his wife and she cannot claim his money. This is reported by The Guardian.
Previously, the London Court obliged Akhmedov to give his former wife almost half of his fortune. The billionaire continues to challenge this decision for several years. In the court, he said that he had divorced in 2000, before his spouse received British citizenship. However, in 2016, British court decided that the documents were fake.
After that, the billionaire brought the matter before the Russian representative office of Interpol, which confirmed the dissolution of the marriage by the Zyuzinsky District Court of Moscow in 2000. In addition, Interpol representatives reported that they are investigating into the claims of Akhmedov and his lawyers about his wife’s misappropriation of assets as a result of fraud.
