Lawyer Stephen Curtis worked for Bank Menatep, set up by Mikhail Khodorkovsky, once Russia's richest man.
Khodorkovsky owned the £15billion Russian oil company Yukos.
In 1992, Menatep began working for lots of oligarchs.
Curtis became involved in hiding the oligarch's wealth.
Reportedly, 'hundreds of millions of dollars of Russian oil profits from Yukos were spirited away via offshore accounts in Gibraltar, the Cayman Islands and the Isle of Man'.
Curtis mixed with people like Berezovsky, Abramovich and their pal Sheik Sultan bin Khalifa bin Zayed Al-Nahyan, brother of the ruler of Abu Dhabi.
Curtis began living like an oligarch.
In 2003, Khodorkovsky was arrested in Russia for alleged tax evasion and fraud.
Curtis took over the running of Menatep.
In 2004, Curtis contacted the UK Foreign Office and National Crime Intelligence Service and offered to co-operate with them, in return for protection.
In 2004, in the UK, Stephen Curtis was killed in a helicopter crash.
