According to the Department of Protection of the State Border of the Georgian Interior Ministry, when crossing the Georgian border, B. Berezovski uses a British passport, issued in the name of Platon Elenin.
"First on June 7 and then just a few days ago Boris Berezovski and Badri Patarkatsishvili came to visit, for the second time during this month, the holiday resort of Ureki. Together they visited the Ureki high school and mixed with the children. They took note of the technical facilities of our school", deputy director of the high school of the Ureki village, Tsisana Chepkhodze, told journalists.
After the Georgian "revolution of the roses" Berezovski had visited Georgia several times on Patarkatsishvili's invitation.
Georgian authorities make no obstacles to B. Berezovski's entering Georgian territory, explaining that Georgia had joined the Geneva Convention, which provides protection to Berezovski as a political emigrant.
B. Berezovski is an internationally wanted criminal. On August 6, 2002, the Russian General Prosecutor's Office had opened a criminal case against him and two former top managers of the "Logovaz" Auto Works – Badri Patarkatsishvili and Yuli Doubov. On October 15, 2002, they were charged with misappropriation of funds on a specially large scale by fraud.
