Man Sentenced to Pay His Mother £ 75 Million After Helping Billionaire Father Hide Divorce Money | UK News

A man has been ordered to pay his divorced mother £ 75million after helping his father hide money and property from her, a court has ruled.

In 2016, Ms Akhmedova received a 41.5% share of the over £ 1 billion fortune from 65-year-old Farkhad Akhmedov.
