Fugitive tycoon Arkady Gaydamak has asked the Swiss authorities to grant him bail, a week after he was arrested for alleged breach of financial trust, a prosecutor told AFP Tuesday. Geneva prosecutor Dario Zani said justice authorities would rule on the request "over coming days", and added that Franco-Israeli citizen Gaydamak had also sought to claim immunity as an Angolan diplomat. Gaydamak, 61, is wanted in France for his role in the 1990s "Angolagate" scandal over illegal arms sales to the African nation during its civil war.
