Ibori Loses Appeal Against UK Graft Conviction








JAMES IBORI Wednesday lost an appeal against his conviction in London.


Ibori was jailed in Britain for laundering tens of millions of dollars in stolen public funds through British banks and properties.

The former Delta state Governor pleaded guilty in a London court in 2012 to 10 counts of fraud and money-laundering involving sums amounting to at least 66 million.

He received a 13-year jail sentence of which he served half, as is common in the British system.

He appealed against his conviction, alleging misconduct by British police and prosecutors, which he argued tainted the judicial process.
