Djibouti Corruption Case Dismissed by UK Courts

A U.K. court recently dismissed a claim made by the Government of Djibouti against a powerful businessman who had fallen out of favor with the government. The politically-connected businessman, Abdourahman Mohamed Mahmoud Boreh, is credited with playing an integral role in the development of the nation’s ports, oil storage, and duty free facilities. The government is petitioning for control of these facilities that are currently owned by Dubai-based DP World and other subsidiaries. Its argument rests in how bribery and fraudulent agreements for consultancy payments infringe upon investment and infrastructure agreements that are already in effect. Justice Flaux asserted that the legal proceedings were jumpstarted by Boreh’s lack of support for the president running for a third term, noting a break in their former friendship.
