David Haigh faces English jail
Detained in Dubai issued a fraud alert against David Haigh, who has been found a fraudster by the English High Court. He has been issued with an order to repay the embezzled funds and slapped with a penal order for contempt of court after refusing to disclose his financial position.
The English high court further ruled that Haigh was a vexatious litigator and his claims ruled "without merit". This is not the first time Haigh has been on the receiving end of a without merit ruling. In fact, there have been more than eight rulings, meaning he has a history of making unsubstantiated legal claims. In another case, he was ordered to pay £100,000 in legal costs for his "without merit" private prosecution of staff at GFH.
Haigh will now have to turn over the hotel he bought with embezzled funds, a farm house and any cash and assets to make up the stolen £4m, interest, fees and legal costs owed to GFH.
Justice Henshaw of England's High Court ruled that medical evidence provided by David was unreliable, and that David had lied to the court previously in respect of his medical evidence.
