Ethiopian billionaire Sheikh Mohammed Hussein Al Amoudi - Tigrai Online
According to court records Sheik Mohammed Al Moudi won libel action for £180,000.00 or $271,126.24 USD  against Elias Kifle and Ethiopian Review Inc.

It is said, "You can fool some of the people some of the time, but you can't fool all of the people all of the time." The Editor of Ethiopian Review has survived on a diet of lies for the past two decades, until that is his pathological lies got him in hot water with British law.

According to court records Sheik Mohammed Al Moudi won libel action for £180,000.00 or $271,126.24 USD  against Elias Kifle and Ethiopian Review Inc. (a company incorporated in accordance with the laws of Florida).

The court records show that the judgment rendered against Ethiopian Review and it’s Editor was a libel action for false allegation that Sheik Mohammed Al Moudi “ has been trafficking 45,000 Ethiopian women a month, apparently sold into slavery and abused in various ways. These allegations that are truly shocking and obviously seriously defamatory”.

This is the second time for Sheik Mohammed Al Moudi to win against Elias Kifle and Ethiopian Review.  Last time HHJ Parkes QC, in July 2011, awarded £175,000 to Sheik Mohammed Al Moudi for false allegation about Sheik Al Amoudi's daughter Sarah. Elias Kifle claimed on his website Ethiopian Review, Sarah was facing a stoning in Saudi Arabia with the connivance of her father, while she was in fact a student living in England out of harm's way. The courts determined that claim by Ethiopian Review was quite untrue and the court slapped the judgment against Ethiopian Review and its Editor.

Tigrai Online is not in the business of demonizing individuals as we feel smear and sneer attacks serves no purpose whatsoever to the values of freedom of speech and thought we have been upholding since our inception. However, we go that proverbial extra mile to expose individuals who are notorious in demonizing those who contribute their due share to the growth and development of Ethiopia.

It is in this spirit that we invite our esteemed readers to read the Open Judgment in the case of Sheik Mohammed Al Moudi and Elias Kifle. To read the full text please click here.
