France: Equatorial Guinea's world court case is abuse of law

18 October 2016, 20:58

The Hague - France has told judges at the United Nations' highest court that they do not have jurisdiction in a case brought by Equatorial Guinea aimed at halting a Paris money-laundering case against the son of the African nation's president.

Alain Pellet, a law professor representing France, on Tuesday told the International Court of Justice that Equatorial Guinea's case was a "flagrant and evident abuse of law."

Equatorial Guinea filed the case with the world court earlier this year, saying that Teodoro Nguema Obiang Mangue has immunity from prosecution because of his position as vice president and insisting that a swanky property on one of Paris' most upscale avenues that figures in the French case is actually the country's embassy and cannot be confiscated.
