Roman Abramovich, owner of the oligarchy and Chelsea football club, has been accused by a British MP of hastily selling assets in the UK to avoid possible financial sanctions.
Chris Bryant, a Labor MP and chairman of the Parliamentary Standards Committee, has accused the government of taking too long to impose sanctions on those with ties to Vladimir Putin after Russia’s occupation of Ukraine.
Utilizing parliamentary privilege to protect him from legal action, Bryant suggested that Abramovich take steps to prevent his assets from being frozen, according to the British newspaper “The Guardian”. “I think he is [Abramovich] Fear of getting permission, which is why he is going to sell his house tomorrow [quarta-feira] And another apartment, ”the deputy in the House of Commons said Tuesday.
The British Foreign Office has announced that “120 companies and oligarchs” will be affected by the new financial restrictions. However, so far only a few individuals have been targeted by these restrictions.
