LONDON — The late Russian businessman Boris Berezovsky will be buried in the Gunnersbury Cemetery in London as soon as medical tests are completed, news reports said Tuesday.
The 67-year-old tycoon’s two eldest daughters, Liza and Yekaterina, confirmed that he will be buried in London, Interfax reported.
A source close to the family told Dozhd television that the family members wanted him to be buried in London since they have all been living there for several years now.
Berezovsky’s first wife Nina Korotkova is due to arrive in London shortly to arrange the funeral, the date of which is yet to be announced.
Berezovsky was found dead March 25 in the locked bathroom of his luxury mansion near London with a ligature around his neck and a piece of similar material on the shower rail above him.
The initial post-mortem examination revealed a broken rib but no bruising on his body. Police have said they cannot rule out foul play, though the results of several different toxicology tests will not be available for several weeks.
Berezovsky’s daughter Anastasia described her father as a man of “overwhelming charm” in a tribute last week, The Guardian reported. She also said that “nothing about him was ordinary.”
