JUFFALI LOSES – Saudi Billionaire Can Be Sued By Ex-Wife

Judge Says His Diplomatic Appointment ‘Entirely Artificial’.


THE St Lucia government’s efforts to preserve the diplomatic immunity granted to a Saudi billionaire who is facing divorce proceedings in a British court, have been all in vain.

The ex-wife of WalidJuffali, former model Christina Estrada has won the right to sue him in Britain after a judge rejected his claim to have immunity from legal action as a diplomat for St Lucia.

Estrada is seeking a slice of the £4billion fortune of Sheikh WalidJuffali after the end of their 13-year marriage.

But the tycoon, who owns more than £140million of property in the UK, insisted that he was not subject to British divorce laws because he is St Lucia’s representative to the International Maritime Organisation.

According to DAILY MAIL, yesterday a High Court judge threw out that argument, describing Juffali’s diplomatic appointment as ‘spurious’ and ‘entirely artificial’ and clearing the way for Ms Estrada, 53, to continue her lawsuit.

Dr Juffali, 60, who has vowed to appeal, was appointed to represent St Lucia at the IMO two years ago, but has never attended a meeting of the London-based organisation and has allegedly spent much of the time ill in hospital.

Mr. Justice Hayden declared: “I am satisfied that what has transpired here is that [Dr Juffali] has sought and obtained a diplomatic appointment with the sole intention of defeating [Ms Estrada’s] claims consequent on the breakdown of their marriage.

‘Dr Juffali has not, in any real sense, taken up his appointment, nor has he discharged any responsibilities in connection with it. It is an entirely artificial construct.’

The tycoon divorced Ms Estrada in Saudi Arabia by saying ‘I divorce you’ three times, but asserts in court statements that he has made ‘generous’ provision and bought her a property in Beverly Hills, California.

He claims he pays her $100,000 (£70,000) a month and meets all the expenses of raising the couple’s 13-year-old daughter.

Ms Estrada says Dr Juffali obtained the divorce without her knowledge and it is not possible for her to bring any financial claims against him in his Saudi homeland.

The Kenny Anthony government last month rejected a request by the British government that it lifts Juffali’s diplomatic immunity so that he could be made to testify in the court in Estrada’s suit.


  1. As this dram of personal devorce, tangled with the web of Lucian Politics on the international stage, here is a word that most of the Anglophones may not fully understand; the word is Shaikh made up of the following Arabic letters: خ ي ش

    Although Arabic is read from the Right to the Left, I have compiled the Arabic letters from left to right.
    The first letter ش produces the English equivalent sound of the letters “SH” (no equivalent english letter), and this letter is governed by a short vowel called “Fatah” with an English equivalent of the vowel “A”


    Fatah َ Fatah is a diagonal stroke written above the consonant which precedes it in pronunciation. It represents a short vowel a ( a short “ah” sound) and so we now have


    The second letter ي produces the English equivalent sound of the letter “Y”, sometimes transliterated as “i”. This Arabic letter serves both as a consonant and also as the Long “Vowel = ee”.

    So we have : SHAY or SHAI

    The last Arabic letter, to which there is no equivalent letter in English, produces a sound from the back of the mouth, near the throat of a “KH” sound. The name of the letter is the “Kha” and we now have the word

    Shaikh, or Shaykh

    This word transliterated as Sheikh is incorrect, and sometimes erroneously pronounced as “Sheek”.

    Shaikh, or Shaykh means a wise or knowledgeable person, and is commonly used when addressing an Elder, or a person of Knowledge and respect. Commonly used as we use Mister Anthony, Mister Chester Hinkson.

    here are the other Arabic Alphabets: There are many sounds in this Great Language that there is no equivalent English sounds.


  2. S.O.M.
    To you the Arabic language must be beautiful, to me Patois (Creole) is also
    very beautiful. I love to listen to the songs of the Cristian life, especially in Latin
    don’t you? to me it is a blessing. the songs of the Gregorian Chants. You must love it.
    Jesus’ blessings to you my friend.

    1. SOM makes a great point, VIRGIL. Who speaks Latin anywhere in the world? Dead Romans? Hee heee. LATIN, you sound crazy THE VIRGIL.

  3. /

    The VIRGIL,

    After all this time, you seem to have never found your way out of the “Dark Wood of Error” or are you perpetually blocked by the She-wolf, and never to emerge from Darkness ? Let me state some simple realities; Latin is considered a dead language, and your Prophet Esa/Jesus the son of Mary (Allah’s Peace be upon him/ PBUH) spoke the language Aramaic. Of course, those of you who were indoctrinated into this Christian Worship of Dead People, have been taught NEVER TO BE OBJECTIVE, but to entangle your intellect with “SUPERNATURAL MYSTERIES” that answers nothing, hence your stagnation into the DARK WOOD FOREST, being guarded by the SHE WOLF or is it the LEOPARD ?

    Arabic, with its various cultural subtleties is alive and spoken widely throughout the World – Where is Latin Spoken again; in Latin America [SIC] ?? But Muhammad (PBUH) the final Prophet sent to all of mankind spoke Arabic. Today, of all the revealed Scriptures from the ONE AND ONLY GOD, who is neither man or woman, but UNIQUE – The Torah, revealed to Musa/Moses (PBUH) ; The Zaboor/Psalms revealed to Dawood/David (PBUH); The Injeel/Gospel revealed to Esa/Jesus the son of Mary (PBUH) – The Quran revealed to Muhammad (PBUH) – The Quran is the ONLY revealed Scripture revealed from the Lord of Creation that exist in its original form and language.

    As President of the Student Government at College in the States, I learnt I did not have diplomatic skills, you know saying what you don’t mean, and there was always background noises of impeachment. Now here’s what I mean, some call it, “strait talk”. This Latin, “BOBBINO BOBBISKUM” sounds like a frigging HORROR MOVIE ! “ES SPIRITU SANTUS” ??

    Garcon have you ever listened the Vampire monotone fifteenth Century Count Dracula invocation of the dead ? and you tell me how much you love this habitation in Limbo ? you cannot be serious about these Dracula sounding chants ?

    There is another Lucian who we “DE-GAJEYED” named TOM TOM, living in his sister’s basement with a white woman who thinks speaking in TONGUES will save him from the bowels of Hell for his worshiping Mother Teresa, but you seem to be Hell Bent yourself THE VIRGIL..




    1. where do these reporters come from? “The Saint Lucia government’s effort to preserve the diplomatic immunity…..” Was there an effort on the part of the government to PRESERVE his diplomatic immunity? Didn’t the government simply respond to a request by stating that it didn’t see merit in suspending its reps immunity? Smh. They were all reporting that the UK government had demanded or given an ultimatum when it was a request.
