Mikhail Khodorkovsky has begun testifying in the Meshchansky court
Yukos former CEO Mikhail Khodorkovsky has begun testifying in the Meshchansky court - he denies his guilt and tells of his work as a janitor. Khodorkovsky gives his evidence in a free form, telling it as a story. "I am not going to disown my testimony, on the contrary I am proud that over the past 15 years I have been in charge of a number of successful enterprises and helped other enterprises up from their knees following the collapse of the USSR," Khodorkovsky said. He now added that he objected to "a criminally artistic description of normal productive activity of the enterprises, and also inventions contained in the indictment". The former Yukos head said that all his moves had been aimed at achieving public aims. "Never has my decision been repealed by a court or state bodies," Khodorkovsky noted. He also said that despite his fairly good memory he could not recall every paper which he signed in the course of his work in the company. "Between 1994 and 2003 I attended not fewer than three thousand conferences, each of which discussed up to 20 questions," Khodorkovsky said. He said that all decisions adopted at meetings and by him personally were "public and open". Khodorkovsky told the court about the beginning of his working career and drew attention to the fact that he had worked as a janitor for seven years. "I was born in Moscow in 1963. And began my working life at the age of 14," Khodorkovsky said. At the same time he remarked that he had graduated from the Moscow Mendeleyev Institute of Chemical Technology with a first-class honors degree, and worked as a deputy secretary of a Komsomol organization. Currently Khodorkovsky is testifying about the investment tender to purchase a 20 per cent stake in Apatit company
