Three days before the January 8th deadline expires on an ultimatum issued by a British Diplomat late last year to the Dr Kenny Anthony Administration regarding the Jufali affair, there has been no word on what government’s next move will be
A communiqué from the Office of the Prime Minister issued on December 29th 2015 confirmed having received a request from Mr. Julian Evans of the Protocol Directorate of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office to grant a waiver of the diplomatic immunity of Dr. Walid Ahmed Juffali.
The request comes as Dr Jufali’s ex wife prepares to raise a legal challenge against him in the British courts on a divorce settlement.
Reliable sources have informed that there has been no further communication from Dr Kenny Anthony following the release issued late last month. However it is expected that he will address the issue at some point today.
The claim for additional relief by Dr. Juffali’s ex-wife will be heard in the High Court in London from January 18th-22nd, 2016.
