The billionaire owner of English Premier League side, Chelsea, Roman Abramovich has been barred from living in Britain ever again.
The Russian has not been seen in Stamford Bridge to support his club for months.
It was gathered that Abramovich withdrew his application for a British Tier 1 investor visa in 2018, following criticism of Russian oligarchs in the wake of the Salisbury poisonings.
The Sun disclosed that senior security sources noted that Abramovich might never be allowed to live in Britain again.
Immigration officials have reportedly been instructed to hinder Abramovich who owns a £125million mansion near Kensington Palace from accessing Britain.
The case of the 55-year-old businessman is being handled by the Home Office’s ‘Special Cases Unit’.
This is coming Abramovich was named by MPs on Tuesday as being one of 35 oligarchs identified by Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny as one of the ‘key enablers’ of the ‘kleptocracy’ run by the country’s president Vladimir Putin.
The sanction may be imposed on him as Britain looked to impose sanctions on Russia amid rising tensions with Ukraine.
