Juffali’s ex-wife names PM in legal action

Lawyers representing the ex-wife of Saudi billionaire, Doctor Walid Juffali, have named Prime Minister Doctor Kenny Anthony as a respondent in a case to be heard here.

HTS News 4Orce broke the news last night during its evening newscast.

Anthony confirmed that he and his Attorney General have been named as respondents in the case.

Lawyers for Juffali’s ex-wife are seeking a declaration from the court that the appointment of the Saudi billionaire as Saint Lucia’s Permanent Representative to the International Maritime Organization (IMO), is invalid and unlawful.

“That would be a very interesting contest because you know I like a legal contest,” Prime Minister Anthony told HTS News 4Orce.

In February this year, a British Judge dismissed Juffali’s claim of diplomatic immunity, giving his ex-wife the opportunity to pursue legal action to claim some of the Saudi national’s fortune in the UK.

Juffali has filed an appeal.

Prime Minister Doctor Kenny Anthony, a former University of the West Indies Law Lecturer, has consistently defended his administration’s refusal to accede to requests to waive the Saudi national’s diplomatic immunity.

Of the case that has been filed naming him and the Attorney General as respondents, Anthony said:

“We will deal with that very soon.”

    Looks like the prime minister is a defense lawyer for the man. Again taxpayers here will be paying the bill for his trip to London and other foolish deeds.

      You may have forgotten the UN funds Scandal-right.
      This was an actual crime orchestrated by the UWP, where millions were stolen under their stewardship.

      The Prime Minister has NOT committed any crime, unlike your party.
      I won’t even talk about the Taiwanese funds where your party were pocketing in millions.

    I am seriously confused! So because of diplomatic immunity, she can not touch her ex, but she can have the Prime Minister as a respondent?
