    Ah... Blighty, where gangsters only throw bits of paper at each other.

    Вспоминается Иван Иваныч с Иваном Никифоровичем и их "гусаком".

    Я так думаю.

    ...дорогу ему преградили трое охранников Абрамовича – бывшие бойцы спецназа ВВС.

    ВВС

    Though the Daily Mail articled described them as "trained by the SAS", so one of them is guilding the lily for their target audience.

    When he tried to thrust the writ into his hands, 41-year-old Abramovich pulled his arms back and the papers fell to the floor.

    One astonished onlooker heard Berezovsky declare: "I've got a present for you. This is for you, from me."

    The drama was captured on the shop's CCTV, and within 20 minutes, Berezovsky's lawyers had demanded the footage as evidence that the High Court writ had been served.
    Funny. How can I translate to English: "Маразм крепчает?"

    First, I really don't understand: if there is really a court order for Abramovich, why Berezovsky must pass it personally? Aren't there special government officials to perform such kind of tasks?

    Just an archaic bit of legal nonsense from the past that clings on in certain specific circumstances for a variety of arcane reasons.

    In English law, when it's a lawsuit between individuals or private companies, it is up to the person suing to show that they have been granted jurisdiction over the person being sued. The case has nothing to do with the state so the state plays no part in the serving of process.
