Boris Berezovsky has denied claims that he sent a threatening text message to a former employee, reports the BBC.The claims came during Berezvosky’s ongoing (and fascinating) legal battle against fellow oligarch Roman Abramovich over huge profits gained in the “Wild East” of post-Soviet Russia.
Abramovich associate and Chelsea football-club director Eugene Tenenbaum told the court about the (comically) threatening text message:
“It said that, ‘I know you’re helping them. I’m watching you. I’m listening to your phone calls. I’m controlling your Skype’.
“And I think he referred to Dr Evil – ‘I’m Dr Evil’, something to that effect.”
The court case between Berezvosky and Abramovich is said to be the biggest personal lawsuit in history.
