` Khodorkovsky submits request for permanent residency in Switzerland ‘

#AceFinanceNews Mikhail Khodorkovsky has submitted a request for permanent residency in Switzerland, the spokesman for the ex-oil tycoon told Reuters.

The 50-year-old has been living in Switzerland since January, with the country granting him a three-month Schengen visa. Khodorkovsky, who used to be Russia’s richest man and owner of the Yukos oil company, was freed from prison in December after serving over a decade on fraud and embezzlement charges.
