Court rules in favor of Djibouti businessman, DP World in port case

A London court has cleared a prominent businessman in a multi-million dollar corruption claim brought by the Djibouti government, in a case indirectly involving DP World. The claim against Abdourahman Boreh was brought in 2012 and accused him of granting concessions to DP World when he managed Djibouti's port authority. The ruling ordered the East African nation to pay £9.3 million (AED 480 million) towards Boreh’s legal costs, in addition to other fees. DP World has welcomed the ruling, saying it looks forward to continue contributing to Djibouti’s economy and community.
