Berezovsky will plead with Latvia

January 27 2006

Boris Berezovsky intends to file a lawsuit against Latvia in the European Court. He's going to appeal the decision of the authorities of the country, which included him on a blacklist.

"Right now my lawyers are preparing the necessary documents," - said the tycoon. Previously, he filed a lawsuit in the Supreme Court, but he dismissed the complaint of the entrepreneur.

We recall that Boris Berezovsky was included in the blacklist on the recommendation of the National Security Council of Latvia. In September, he visited the country on the passport of a refugee who has been issued in the name of Platon Elenin, sparking protests from Russia.

After Berezovsky was included in the blacklist, he issued a statement to the Latvian media, which explained the decision of the Latvian authorities under pressure from two sides - from Moscow and from the structures associated with the famous American financier and philanthropist George Soros.

According to a Russian businessman, in his time he worked closely with George Soros, and even in 1995 at the request of the latter has allocated 1.5 million dollars from their funds to support humanitarian programs that the Soros Foundation, within the territory of Russia, RBC reports.
