US asked AG for help, says Pryde The United States of America had engaged the assistance of the Attorney General's office to register a warrant and seize the Russian multi-million-dollar super yacht Amadea.

This was a revelation made by the Director of Public Prosecution Christopher Pryde when the case was called by the Court of Appeal.

The yacht which is owned by Russian billionaire Suleyman Kerimov was restrained from leaving Fiji last week after defence lawyer Faizal Haniff filed for an appeal.

Pryde said Attorney General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum had authorised him as the Director of Public Prosecutions to register a warrant from the United States to seize Amadea.

He said any criminal offences should be dealt with by the authorities in the United States of America, and the yacht should be allowed to leave Fijian waters.

He said Marshalls and the Federal Bureau of Investigations are on board, gathering evidence for criminal proceedings.

He said it is costing the government $1.2 million a week to keep the superyacht in the country and it is becoming a nuisance.

Pryde said the Court of Appeal need to dismiss the application by Haniff who is challenging the order of the High Court to grant the seizure.

Haniff said the request for seizure from the United States is directed at the jurisdiction of Columbia and not the Fiji Courts.

He said the Court cannot give powers to a country like America without considering local laws and according to the law local authorities cannot allow the seizure of property.
