Russian oligarch in contempt of court over unpaid £453m divorce bill A Russian billionaire has not paid his ex-wife “one cent” of the £453m he was ordered to pay her following the breakdown of their marriage, a court in London has heard. Mr Justice Haddon-Cave told the family division of the high court that Farkhad Akhmedov, a former oil and gas trader who made his fortune in the Russian energy business, was in contempt of court. In December 2016 Haddon-Cave ordered Akhmedov, who is in his 60s, to pay Akhmedova, who is in her 40s, a 41.5% share of his £1bn-plus fortune. “Not a cent has been paid to Ms Akhmedova,” Hodge Malek QC, who leads Akhmedova’s legal team, told the judge. “It is clear though that assets have been moved.”
