Roman Abramovich Arrest: Spokesman Denies Chelsea Owner Detained in United States by FBI By GARETH PLATT: Subscribe to Gareth's RSS feed March 25, 2013 1:51 PM GMT
Roman Abramovich's spokesperson has denied claims the mogul has been arrested in the FBI. A spokesperson for Roman Abramovich has denied claims the Chelsea owner has been arrested in the United States by the FBI.
Abramovich's press secretary John Mann confirmed that the tycoon is in the US, but said that reports of his arrest were "completely untrue".
The FBI has yet to provide comment on the story.
Russia Today, a news website close to President Vladimir Putin, earlier broke the story that Abramovich had been arrested, without giving any further details as to the nature of the detention.
Abramovich's former business partner Boris Beresovsky, with whom he fought a high-profile legal battle which finished last year, died on Saturday at his Hertfordshire mansion. However investigators have said there is as yet no evidence of foul play.
Abramovich is one of the world's most high-profile businessmen, and has been owner of Chelsea football club for the last 10 years.
ports from Russia* claim that Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has been detained by authorities in the United States, specifically the FBI. Obviously, this could be very, very bad. We really don't need our owner being thrown in prison right now, but the way our season has been going...
Gazprom's explanation made me laugh too. It reminded me of the sky clip of the Iraqi pr man saying, "there was no Americans in Baghdad" with a backdrop of an American Abraham's tank behind him. Meanwhile, they are exploring for oil off Alaska/Russia coast.
With the favoured oligarchs in position and under the patronage of Putin, the Russian economy will start to move in an organised direction. Don't forget Abramovich stepped into that Nickel dispute and resolved that problem. Putin wants Russia to be powerful again with a strong diversified economy and that takes money. Russia/China Sino deals have been signed, oil was at the top of the list. Zol will benefit from this, the first well is to be drilled by winter. So I imagine the paperwork process is advanced.
Morning all. Regarding the relisting of Zol, along with its (hopefully) new and higher price. People have speculated that this could take days / weeks or even months. Does this mean that whilst the share is "unlisted" that Zol can not perform any more transactions - ie acquire something else, as effectively the company has been stock exchange "paused" until this transaction has been resolved.
