Nigeria Misusing Citibank HSBC and JPMorgan Subpoenas SDNY Judge Schofield Is Told

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - The Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, July 9 –    The Federal Republic of Nigeria in March asked U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Lorna G. Schofield for subpoenas to Citibank, HSBC, JPMorgan and other banks.  

On July 9 Judge Schofield held a proceeding in which it was argued that Nigeria should have disclosed it would use the information in the UK. Inner City Press covered the proceeding.   

An entity called Process and Industrial Developments Limited was complaining about the use of the information in the Commercial Court in London "to set aside the arbitration award that P&ID obtained against Nigeria in 2017." 

 Judge Schofield ordered the parties to meet and confer and file simultaneous letter briefs on July 21.

The case is In Re: Ex Parte Application of the Federal Republic of Nigeria et al., 20-mc-169 (Schofield)
