Mrs. Theresa Ibori Owing the UK Millions

Theresa Ibori, wife of jailed former governor of Delta State Chief James Onanefe Ibori, was on the list of deadbeats who altogether owe
British taxpayers “a staggering one billion
pounds,” according to a new report.

Senior lawyers called on ministers to look “urgently” at whether new powers were needed to collect the unpaid debts. Mrs. Ibori’s name appeared alongside major drug importers, traffickers, fraudsters and other serious criminals who are among more than 7,000 convicted offenders that must still pay back their unlawful gains.

“These are very worrying figures,” said Keith Vaz , chair of the Commons home affairs select committee of the unpaid debt totals.

“They show that it is far too easy for major criminals to hold onto the profits of their crime. These serious offenders are escaping proper punishment and, even worse, they are being left with large sums of money which they can use to fund further crimes.”

Mrs. Ibori still owes just a little less than £5 million of a court order imposed for her role in a £50 million fraud committed by her husband, despite owning a home in Hampstead and
missing a deadline for repayment that ran out
in May.

You can sure get away with anything I mean anything in Nigeria but when you try these criminal acts outside the shores of Nigeria that's when you'll know that there's actually something like Justice.
