“First, the Devonia agreement was not a real agreement. It was a fictitious agreement to establish documents that would give a false impression that a genuine commercial transaction had been entered into to satisfy the British bank`s money laundering requirements on accounts on which Mr. Abramovich`s $1.3 million was ultimately to be paid to Mr. Berezovsky and Mr. Patarkatsishvili. Secondly, Mr. Abramovich did not participate in or participate in the Devonia Agreement and was not aware of its terms: a participation as limited as at a lower level of its accounting staff than could be described as a devonia agreement was directed towards mechanics for the payment of the $1.3 billion in devonia account and limited to mechanics for the payment of the $1.3 billion devonia. Third, contrary to the provisions of the Devonia Agreement, there was never any real intention that Devonia “transfer the economic shares [allegedly] acquired from Mr. Abramovich or to companies or companies that are controlled by or related to him, in accordance with the agreement. Fourth, Devonia never transferred such interests to Mr. Abramovich or to companies related to him. Fifth, since it was a rescue operation, the Devonia agreement did not support Mr Berezovski`s case with respect to the so-called 1995 and 1996 agreements or the issue of Sibneft intimidation. Sixth, on the contrary, the evidence on this issue and the fact that Mr Berezovski chose to assert that the Devonia agreement was a genuine agreement did not reflect Mr Berezovsky`s credibility.
One. The agreement with Badri was reached on May 29, I remember very well. Everything that has happened before is fictitious on this basis. All agreements signed before May 29 have all been retrodated, all retrodated. If I remember correctly, it was May 29. Law insiders say Sheikh Sultan bin Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, eldest son of the Emir of Abu Dhabi, could be threatened with a money laundering investigation after Justice Gloster said he participated in a “false agreement” to circumvent money laundering rules to pay $1.3 billion in “protection money” to Beskinov , the owner of FC Chelsea.
