A Georgian billionaire pursuing Credit Suisse Group AG across the world for hundreds of millions of dollars he lost to fraud said his treatment by the bank was worse than anything he saw in the freewheeling days of finance in post-Soviet Russia. 

Bidzina Ivanishvili was testifying in a Bermuda court through a translator via a weblink from Georgia in his first public remarks about the case since an interview with Bloomberg in late 2019.
