The judgment of High Court of Justice in England for £30 million finally came into force


The judgment of High Court of Justice in England for £30 million finally came into force

In the beginning of July, 2018 The Court of Appeal rejected to accept an appeal of Mr Bazhanov, referring to its groundlessness and the absence of violations by the judge of the High court of Justice in England in deciding to refuse jurisdiction.

In December, 2017 the High court of Justice in England rejected the claim of Mr Bazhanov, former Deputy head of the Ministry of agriculture of the Russian Federation, to companies of the Saint Petersburg holding “Blago” owner, Arkadiy Fosman, in the amount of £30 million.
