Husband of Russian wife who died mysteriously in London had infuriated Putin with noisy fireworks parties years before and was involved in £35m property dispute linked to Russian president
'Healthy' Irina Izmestieva, 52, was this month found dead at her £15 million Kensington mansion, sparking a demand from the capital's most prominent Moscow emigre that MI5 should investigate.
Now it can be revealed that her husband Igor Izmestyev, 55, a former senator jailed in Russia, had infuriated the Kremlin leader's circle by refusing to vacate and sell the family's pink-tinted £35 million 'art nouveau castle' which was close to Putin's official residence Novo-Ogaryovo, his main home.
The bitter property dispute erupted in 2006 when Izmestieva's husband was told noise from the family's regular firework parties was annoying Putin, his then wife Lyudmila, and their two daughters, as well as distressing their pet dogs and goat called Skazka.
