Khodorkovsky's whereabouts still unknown
Confusion and mystery surrounds the whereabouts of Mikhail Khodorkovsky, former head of oil giant Yukos who was found guilty of tax evasion and fraud.
When lawyers for Mr Khodorkovsky went to meet their client, they were told he had been moved from a Moscow jail to finish his sentence at another prison.
Authorities declined to give details, and speculation has been rife as to where the troubled tycoon will end up.
After being held in Moscow, the pair have been sent to a penal colony to serve out the remainder of their sentences.
Newspaper reports have claimed that the two men are heading for Siberia, while others have asserted that they will be held in prisons closer to Moscow.
Russia's Federal Prison Service said that relatives would be contacted by mail - which is the normal procedure - when Mr Khodorkovsky and Mr Lebedev arrive at their final destination.
Radio Free Europe has more.
