A Sharia court in Dubai has ignored an order from the High Court that oligarch Farkhad Akhmedov must hand over a £350mn yacht to his ex-wife as part of the UK’s biggest divorce settlement.
A Dubai judge ruled that it was “dismissing the case and orders the claimant to pay expenses and attorney fees”.
Alex Carruthers commented:
“The latest saga in this long running case shows how difficult it can be to enforce English divorce orders around the world. The order may only end up being a symbolic piece of paper with little use in extracting further cash from the ex-spouse.”
