Brazil Drops Money Laundering Charges Against Berezovsky

The Associated Press reports that Brazil’s top court has stopped a money laundering case against Russian billionaire Boris Berezovsky because the judge overseeing the proceedings didn't allow his lawyers to question witnesses after the prosecution.

The Brazilian authorities have accused Boris Berezovsky of being the mastermind behind a huge money laundering scheme with the soccer club Corinthians. The president and vice president of the Brazilian soccer club have been suspended for three years for allegedly letting the team be part of the money laundering front. Berezovsky remains in exile in Britain for the time being.
