The condominium board at The Plaza hotel is suing the nephew of the president of Kazakhstan for allegedly paying no building fees on his $20 million apartment in the past year.

Daniyar Nazarbayev, 26, owes $132,000 in fees, including $71,000 in common charges, according to a foreclosure suit filed yesterday in Manhattan Civil Court. The board is seeking to evict him. His lawyer Russ Nazrisho said Nazarbayev resides in Hong Kong, not in the 18th-floor condo. Nazrisho also claimed his client “paid real-estate taxes and other carrying charges on the property.”

In a separate lawsuit, President Nursultan Nazarbayev’s brother Bolat sued his ex-wife, alleging that he was swindled out of the apartment by signing a power of attorney agreement to give it to Daniyar for $1. Nazrisho denied allegations that Daniyar tricked his way into being admitted to Columbia University. [NYP]Mark Maurer
