Russia's highest court has dismissed a slander suit filed against President Boris Yeltsin by his former bodyguard, a close confidant for more than 10 years.

Alexander Korzhakov, once considered among Russia's most powerful men, had accused his former boss of sullying his "honor and dignity'' when Yeltsin relieved him of his military duties in October.

In issuing the order, Yeltsin had accused Korzhakov of making "slanderous statements'' against Yeltsin and his family.

In a decision that can't be appealed, the Russian Supreme Court on Wednesday rejected Korzhakov's lawsuit and ordered him to pay $1,400 in court expenses.

"The court's decision was predictable and justified,'' said Yeltsin's lawyer, Genri Reznik, according to the Interfax news agency.

Yeltsin fired Korzhakov as his bodyguard in June 1996, just after the first round of the presidential election. Upset, Korzhakov accused Yeltsin of being too ill to govern and said the president was being manipulated by Anatoly Chubais, now first deputy premier, and other Kremlin aides. Yeltsin responded by dismissing Korzhakov from the military service in October.

Since his ouster, Korzhakov has repeatedly promised revelations of high-level corruption, but has delivered little. He also has voiced fears for his freedom and his life, saying the Kremlin wanted to silence him.
