Royal Email Deleted to Obstruct Justice

Nice bit of gossip arising from a London court case. It is said that:

  • A British UK property developer was working with a partner (Middle Eastern royalty).
  • They wanted to develop a part of central London.
  • The UK's Prince of Wales objected to the development, and contacted the partner.
  • There's a nice email record of the interaction.
  • As a result, the partner backed out.
  • The partner deleted the email correspondence with the Prince of Wales, so it wouldn't have to pay around $120 million in compensation to the developer.
  • The partner then lied to the UK courts about its reason for backing out.
