Ibori Appeals UK Court Conviction

Chief James OnanefeIbori, has filed a full appeal in the British Court of Appeal against his 2012 conviction.
A statement from Ibori’s Media Assistant, Tony Eluemunor, said Sunday that Ibori’s counsel informed the Southwark London court on Friday March 17, 2017, that they have filed the appeal on Ibori’s behalf.
As a result, the court then indefinitely adjourned the on-going proceedings concerning the second confiscation hearing.
The original three-week confiscation hearing before Judge Pitts in September 2013 was unable to make any finding of theft from the Delta State.
The British Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) has, since February 2016 been undertaking a mammoth disclosure exercise and so far substantial material evidencing the police corruption and misconduct has been disclosed.
The CPS has gagged the media from reporting on this. Chief James Onanefe Ibori David Rose of the London Mail and Sunday newspaper as well as other Reporters have made applications in open court for the release of this material.
Rose, for instance, argued it is in the public interest to do so, as the Ibori and linked cases are said to have been corrupted by Metropolitan Police corruption, prosecution misconduct and significant non-disclosure of key material which undermines the convictions.
