Credit Suisse Loses Singapore Lawsuit, Court Revised Payment Downwards to $742 Million Instead of $926 Million to Avoid Double Payment with Bermuda Court Awarding More than $500 Million in May 2022, Former Georgia Prime Minister Bidzina Ivanishvili Lost $1.27 Billion & Credit Suisse Failed to Safeguard Investments in Fraud by Private Banker Patrice Lescaudron Who Committed Suicide in Jail in 2020

22nd September 2023 | Hong Kong

Credit Suisse which had lost the $1.27 billion lawsuit in Singapore (May 2023), had been ordered by the Singapore court to pay $742 million instead of $926 million to avoid double payment (Bermuda court awarded more than $500 million in May 2022) to former Georgia Prime Minister Bidzina Ivanishvili.  Credit Suisse Trust Singapore had lost $1.27 billion and had failed to safeguard investments in fraud by private banker Patrice Lescaudron who committed suicide in jail in 2020.  The previous settlement amount of $926 million, includes $79.4 million (May 2023).  Singapore Court: “The parties’ respective forensic accounting experts, Mr Davies and Mr Nicholson, conferred after the delivery of the Judgment to assist the parties to reach agreement on the amount payable under Model 1B from the date of breach. As the parties were not able to agree, the experts provided their respective reports dated 25 August 2023 to assist the Court in the determination of the amount.  The original value of US$926.04m in the Model 1B calculations has reduced to US$781.51m by reason of the change in commencement date, some three months later than the original calculations, and the significantly reduced performance of the Benchmark Portfolio between 1 October 2021 and 26 May 2023. The Settlement amount of US$79,430,773 referred to in the Judgment at [730] was in fact made up of three components, only one of which related to Meadowsweet in the amount of US$30,011,498 (the “Meadowsweet Settlement Amount”). The other two amounts related to the plaintiff’s company Wellminstone SA and personal accounts held by the plaintiff. Mr Davies calculated the amount for deduction on two bases. The first was by deducting the whole of the amount of the Settlement and reaching a total of US$702.8m. The second was by deducting only the Meadowsweet Settlement Amount and reaching a total of US$742.73m.”  View the latest judgement here
