Ibori’s assets confiscation hearing resumes today
Although the hearing itself will start on April 13, and could last between three to six weeks, one of the detectives investigating the case told The Guardian that the reason they’re heading to court on Monday is to agree on the hearing’s timetable. Asked about the hearing, the detective said: “it is due to start on the 13th of April at Southwark Crown Court and may last six weeks. However, there is a mention listed on the 30th of March, regarding the timetable and presentation.”
Although it is not yet clear if Ibori (who is due for release later this year) will attend and give evidence, but when The Guardian asked the source, he said it is up to the defendant to decide, especially, as he has that option in a hearing of this nature.
