PLANE-LY NO GROUNDS OF APPEAL
27 February 2014
HRH Prince Alwaleed’s application for permission to appeal has been refused by the Court of Appeal. Clive Freedman QC leading Alexander Robson of Littleton Chambers appeared at trial for the successful Mrs Sharab and in the Court of Appeal. Lord Pannick QC and Christopher Pymont QC appeared for the Prince in the Court of Appeal. However, Aikens LJ refused permission regarding the appeal as “hopeless”. The ruling puts an end to the highly publicised hearing last summer where Mrs Sharab was awarded $10 million commission plus interest and costs arising out of the sale of an aircraft by the Prince to Colonel Gaddafi.
