According to a report published in Público, Roman Abramovich tried to sell a house in the Algarve valued at ten million euros to an Irish citizen, who then asked Caixa Geral de Depósitos (CGD) for a loan of five million euros to acquire the property.

According to the newspaper, the Portuguese bank itself issued an alert to the Financial Information Unit (UIF) of the Judiciary Police (PJ), since the entity selling the house was Millhouse Views LLC, a company owned by Millhouse LLC – an investment holding owned by the Russian oligarch and listed on the stock exchange.
