Ibori Loses Appeal Against UK Graft Conviction
James Ibori is in the news again.
Recall the former Delta state governor was jailed in Britain for laundering tens of millions of dollars in stolen public funds, through British banks and properties.
He had pleaded guilty in a London court in 2012 to a 10-count charge of fraud and money-laundering, involving sums amounting to at least 50 million pounds ($66 million).
He has now lost an appeal against his conviction in London.
Ibori, who is now back in Nigeria, appealed against his conviction, alleging misconduct by British Police and prosecutors, which he argued, tainted the judicial process.
Ibori was governor of oil-producing Delta State in Southern Nigeria for eight years.
He received a 13-year jail sentence of which he served half, as is common in the British system.Please share the story and WATCH the video below:
