Saudi Arabia: Abdelaziz Bin Fahd Wins appeal
The award of £15m in November 2015 to Janan Harb, a widow of King Fahd, in a London court is set for a retrial following a decision by the Court of Appeal. Harb had sued the late king’s son Prince Abdelaziz Bin Fahd for breach of contract after he failed to pay her a lump sum and transfer to her the title of two properties on Cheyne Walk – assets (she claims) were promised to her under an agreement made between Harb and the prince during a meeting at The Dorchester hotel in 2003. Lawyers for Prince Abdelaziz had always denied her version of events, saying Harb accosted him in the hotel lobby but he did not speak to her.
