A court in Fribourg is hearing claims the 52 year old oligarch owes the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development millions of dollars following a loan it made to the energy giant Gazprom, which is co-owned by Abromovich.

Gazprom is disputing the Swiss court has jurisdiction to hear the case. But the Swiss federal court has already ruled the trial can take place.
