Ibori Loses Appeal In London Court by
ArtistG.A.S . male 12:25pm On Oct 17

Former governor of Delta State , James Ibori , who was jailed in Britain for laundering tens of millions of dollars in stolen public funds , through British banks and properties , lost an appeal against his conviction in London on Wednesday .

Ibori was governor of oil- producing Delta State in Southern Nigeria for eight years.
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 received a 13 -year jail sentence of which he served half, as is common in the British system.
The former governor, who is now back in Nigeria , appealed against his conviction , alleging misconduct by British Police and prosecutors , which he argued, tainted the judicial process .
