I've Not Received Official Notification Of Summons For Examination In Switzerland, Assures Pavel Borodin

Pavel Borodin, state secretary of the union state of Russia and Belarus, assures that to this time he has not received official notification of summons for his examination in Switzerland. He said this to journalists on Friday at the lower parliamentary chamber, the State Duma, after a meeting on an upcoming session of the parliamentary assembly of the Russia-Belarus Union. The session is due to be held in the Belarussian city of Grodno on May 11 through 12. But, Borodin's lawyers have admitted that the notification has indeed arrived from Switzerland, the NTV television channel reported on Thursday. So far, it is unknown why the declarations of Borodin and his lawyers are so much at variance. The former Kremlin household manager under Boris Yeltsin, Pavel Borodin said that he "knows nothing" about summons for examination. Borodin said that there is a definite procedure for summons notification and called information circulated to this effect "a pure-water policy". Pavel Borodin stressed once again that, if he gets an official notification, he will go to Switzerland. He also recalled that his extradition from the United States to Switzerland was voluntary and carried out on his own volition. Switzerland charges Pavel Borodin with money laundering.
