Alisher Usmanov: Russia Wins With Arsenal

by | 27th, September 2007

SAYS Alisher Usmanov: “I consider this team to be the best in the world. But be reassured, the taxes from any Arsenal profit will in any case go to Russia.”

Reassured? It just keeps getting better.

But Usmanov is not profiting at the moment.

Earthquake Cove looks at the matter of his taking on Craig Murray from the position of his lawyers at Schillings:

Problem
Our client was a lardy foreign oligarch looking to take over a leading British football club. The former British Ambassador to his country had published allegations about him which he considered to be false and defamatory.

The solution
We put the frighteners on the former Ambassador’s webhost to such an extent that it shut down not only his blog, but also other high profile blogs which had nothing to do with it, including that of the Conservative candidate for London mayor, and others in elected office. The allegations then spread around the internet and the mainstream media like wildfire.

And as Schillings tell us, they are the best…

See it all here.
