Russian Released Ex-Tycoon Khodorkovsky Arrives in Switzerland

Former Russian oil tycoon Mikhail Khodorkovsky has arrived in Switzerland to see his family from Germany, where he had been staying with his parents since his release from a Russian jail, his representative said on Sunday.

      Spokesman Christian Hanne said Khodorkovsky will stay in Switzerland for at least several days, without giving further details. His three-month visa allows him to travel freely within the 26-nation Schengen area, he added.

      Khodorkovsky was granted a visa to Switzerland, where his wife Inna lives and his twin sons go to school, on December 30. He applied for the visa four days after his release from a Russian prison and arrival in Germany.

      A spokeswoman for Khodorkovsky said he was considering a possible move to the country, where he has business ties.

      Khodorkovsky, former head of the dismantled oil giant Yukos, was freed on December 20 by a presidential pardon after serving more than a decade in prison following his arrest on a Siberian runway in 2003 and two subsequent convictions for fraud, tax evasion and embezzlement.
