A Sharia court in Dubai has ignored an order from the High Court that an oligarch must hand over a £350m yacht to his ex-wife as part of the UK’s biggest divorce settlement. Lawyers say the development further underlines the difficulty of enforcing UK divorce orders abroad.

Henry Hood, a partner at Hunters Solicitors, said:

“This latest step in the Ms Akhmedova’s attempt to enforce the English order  may be a bit of a setback for her. It seems however that not all legal option in Dubai have yet been exhausted.

“Even if they are, with the appeal court in Moscow rejecting the Husband’s main contention that they were divorced years ago, there are likely to be other opportunities for Haddon-Cave J excoriating judgments to be enforced, and the spectator value of the case will continue for a while yet.”
