Khodorkovsky M.B. is accused in absentia under Article 105, paragraph 2. Article 105, paragraph 2 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation – organizing of murder and attempted murder of two or more persons. The website Prigovor.ru reminds its readers of what happened on December 8, 2015.
On this day 6 years ago, on December 8, 2015, it became known that Mikhail Khodorkovsky, the tax criminal, fraud dealer and the former head of the JSC Oil Company Yukos, was put on a wanted list. However, this time the question was not about economic crimes, for which Khodorkovsky had been jailed on two verdicts. This time Khodorkovsky was in absentia accused under Article 105, paragraph 2 (Article 105, paragraph 2 of the Criminal code of the Russian Federation – organizing of murder and attempted murder of two and more persons) within the criminal case pertaining to the murder of Vladimir Petukhov, the mayor of Nefteyugansk.
On the eve, Mikhail Khodorkovsky said that on his name a notice paper had come according to which Mikhail Borisovish Khodorkovsky “on December 11, 2015, at 10 a.m. ought to come to the Investigation Committee of the Russian Federation, at the address: Moscow, Tekhnichesky Lane, 2, office No 715, for interrogation as a defendant of the criminal case No 18/35-03”. On this subpoena, there is a handwritten note: “In so far as Khodorkovsky M.B. is now beyond the territory of the Russian Federation, his appearance is impossible”.
THE ADDRESS OF NON-RESIDENTIAL PROPERTIES
Having learned from his henchmen Leonid Nevzlin and Alexey Pichugin, accused of the series of murders and attempted murders, that he was no longer an outsider and “receiver of the gift” (https://www.kommersant.ru/doc/675751), Khodorkovsky, in all appearances, lost his temper. And he simply started to behave in a very rude way. He said the subpoena “was carried out” to his father. “As if they do not know my address. I inform: Hannover sq.16”
This address in the British capital really exists. But, in all likelihood, it’s a non-residential property. Supposedly, Khodorkovsky, for a certain period of time, had to take shelter in the conference room, in the kitchen, or, perhaps, in the supply closet. But the investigation is not interested in such premises. The investigation is interested in the fugitive criminal by the name Khodorkovsky M.B.
“INVOLVEMENT HAS BEEN RELIABLY ASCERTAINED…”
The information that Khodorkovsky was accused in absentia several days later became a proceeding moment.
“On December 11, 2015, a ruling was delivered on bringing to responsibility Mikhail Khodorkovsky as a defendant of committing crimes under Article 33, paragraph 3, subparagraphs “a”, “б”, “е”, “ж” and “з”, Article 105, paragraph 2, and Article 33, paragraph 3, subparagraphs “a”, “б”, “е”, “ж” and “з”, Article 105, paragraph 2 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (organizing of murder and attempted murder of two and more persons). Whereas Khodorkovsky didn’t present himself in the Investigation Committee of the Russian Federation, he will shortly be put on a wanted list”, said the statement of the Russian Investigation Committee, made public on the basis of the results of the work made by the investigation and operative services which “credibly established the involvement of Khodorkovsky” in murders and attempted murders.
A HOUSE, WHERE NEVZLIN’S HENCHMAN IS HIDING
It’s really difficult to service a subpoena to Khodorkovsky M.B. accused of murder – he shuns the investigation the same way as he tried to do that in October 2003, ignoring the official invocation. However, as of today, thanks to the investigation of the project “Prigovor.ru”, there is an address of residential premises the fugitive defendant is assigned to – the estate "Best Beech Place", situated 60 kilometers from London, in the county East Sussex, near the town Wadherst.
The full address: Best Beech Place, Tidebrook Road, Wadherst, index TN5 6LH, United Kingdom. “Best Beech Place” – a “personal” name of the estate, in place of a house number. Coordinates of the house for search on the map: “51.053204214932855, 0.3095985690803736”.
"It is, still, more accurate than the address "Hanover sq. 16" which Khodorkovsky easily declared the place of his residence", notes the website Prigovor.ru.

The sum of the tax claims against Khodorkovsky's organized criminal group in the oil business was one and a half times more than the defense budget of Russia in 2005.
