UK court throws out FG’s $1bn bribery suit against Shell, Eni

A United Kingdom High Court on Friday ruled that a $1 billion bribery suit brought against oil giants Shell and Eni by the Federal Republic of Nigeria could not go ahead in England.



 According to Premium Times, while referencing a report by Law360.com, the judge, Christopher Butcher, held that the court does not have jurisdiction to hear the claim. 



The suit was another of the many suits that has been springing out of the controversial Malabu Oil deal, known as OPL 245.l
