The first match of the day on Sunday saw Edouard Carmignac’s Talandracas win their first match of the tournament against Harald Link’s Thai Polo 12-10.

The second half saw Coca Cola rally, narrowing the gap to 9-8. Coca Cola’s supporters found their voices and a penalty 60 yard shot from Astrada levelled the score at 9-9. But all too soon Richard Mille were awarded a penalty and Tomas del Rio planted the ball between the posts and completed a 10-9 victory to Richard Mille. Prince Bahar Jefri Bolkiah was delighted to accept the Cooch Behar Cup, without doubt the most beau ...

Learn about memorable moments in the evolution of Jefri Bolkiah
    FIFTIES
  • 2010
    Age 55
    In November 2010, pictures of statues the Prince had made of him and his fiancee having sex were leaked.
    More Details Hide Details Various details, such as previous challenges by BIA to Prince Jefri's credibility, the wealth of Prince Jefri, the Sultan and the state of Brunei, his multiple wives, the statues and the still-in-effect British warrant for the Prince's arrest were banned from being mentioned in the courtroom as Judge Ira Gammerman ruled they were irrelevant to the case. After nearly six weeks of trial, the jury returned a unanimous verdict against the Prince on all but one count. The Prince and the New York Palace Hotel were ordered to pay the Derbyshires US$21 million in total. Brunei has stated it intends to appeal. The Prince’s legal advisor and spokesman is David Sandy, a partner at Simmons & Simmons. See also List of honours of the Bruneian Royal Family by country He has been awarded:
    As of November 2010, the warrant still appears to be in place, meaning the Prince will be arrested if he enters the UK.
    More Details Hide Details
  • 2009
    Age 54
    As of October 2009, Prince Jefri appears to have been allowed back to Brunei.
    More Details Hide Details In 1997 Shannon Marketic, a former Miss USA, accused Prince Jefri and the Sultan, among others, of flying her and many other women to Brunei under false pretenses to be part of a harem, and that she was abused by those in the royal court. She claims she was made part of Prince Jefri's personal harem of women that was made to carry out the prince's every sexual whim, such as to "lick him clean", where the women were made to lick the prince's naked body. The case was settled out of court. In February 1998 Prince Jefri was sued by his former business partners Bob and Rafi Manoukian for £80 million over two property deals they claim he reneged upon; the Manoukians claimed he flew in prostitutes from around the world and led a wildly extravagant lifestyle. The Prince countersued, then settled out of court.
  • 2008
    Age 53
    The contempt proceeding was scheduled for a hearing in June 2008, but the Prince did not attend, instead going to Paris.
    More Details Hide Details Judge Peter Smith did not rule on whether Prince Jefri was in contempt, but did issue a warrant for his arrest.
    He has had five wives, two of whom he is divorced from and three to whom he is still married, and eighteen children aged between around 4 to 37 in 2008.
    More Details Hide Details Additionally he has faced a number of accusations, including lawsuits from the women allegedly involved, that he has paid women to go to Brunei to have sex with him (see “Other legal issues” below); it is alleged he kept a harem of up to forty women for several years, which included the writer Jillian Lauren, who published a book about her experiences. Jillian says that Jefri liked to be called "Robin" by women in the harem, which is also the vanity plate on one of his Bentley Continental Rs.
  • FORTIES
  • 2001
    Age 46
    In 2001 ten thousand lots of Prince Jefri’s possessions went to auction.
    More Details Hide Details However, the BIA alleged that the Prince failed to uphold the agreement by failing to disclose all his accounts, and allowing money to be taken from frozen accounts, and restarted legal proceedings in order to gain full control of the Prince’s assets. After a number of appeals, this finally reached the Privy Council in London, which can serve as Brunei's highest court of appeal as a result of Brunei's former protectorate status. The Privy Council rejected Prince Jefri's evidence, describing his contention that the agreement allowed for him to retain a number of properties as "simply incredible", and ruled in favour of the Government of Brunei and the BIA; consequently the Prince's appeal was dismissed and he was ordered to return the rest of his assets to Brunei. The decision of the Privy Council did not end the litigation between Prince Jefri and the BIA. The BIA re-opened proceedings in Malaysia and the Cayman Islands, resulting in the BIA gaining control over the Hotel Bel-Air in Los Angeles and The New York Palace Hotel in Manhattan.
  • 2000
    Age 45
    In accordance with the settlement agreement signed in 2000, the prince began to return his assets to the state, including more than 500 properties, both in Brunei and abroad, more than 2,000 cars, 100 paintings, five boats, and nine aircraft.
    More Details Hide Details
    Following protracted negotiations a settlement agreement was signed by the Prince in May 2000, the terms of which were never made public.
    More Details Hide Details However, Prince Jefri claimed assurances were made to him by the Sultan with regards to keeping certain properties in order to maintain his lifestyle, which BIA denied.
    Prince Jefri was accused of misappropriating state funds to pay for his own personal investments, bought through BIA and Amedeo companies and removed from his position as head of BIA. In February 2000 the Bruneian government attempted to obtain a freezing order on Prince Jefri’s overseas assets, which led to him countersuing in New York.
    More Details Hide Details
    His costly possessions included a private Boeing 747, a large art collection including works by Manet, Renoir and at least twenty-one works by Degas, along with a collection of 2000 luxury cars, a number of properties including the Plaza Athénée hotel in Paris and Hotel Bel-Air in Los Angeles, The New York Palace Hotel in Manhattan, and others in Paris, Las Vegas and St. John's Lodge, in Regent's Park, London, businesses such as the luxury goods manufacturer Asprey, and a yacht named Tits (which came with tenders named Nipple 1 and Nipple 2).
    More Details Hide Details His assets were estimated at $1.5 billion. In recent years, due to his legal issues (see below) he has been forced to sell many of his assets and be exiled from Brunei, although as of September 2009 he appears to have been allowed to return to Brunei and has been seen in public with the Royal Family. Prince Jefri has had a number of legal issues with the state of Brunei, which have amounted to the most costly legal battle in the world. Brunei is a gas and oil rich state ruled by the Sultan in a constitutional sultanate; the Sultan has control over every aspect of life in Brunei. The Sultan was, at one time, the richest man in the world. From 20 October 1986 to 23 February 1997 Prince Jefri was the Minister of Finance for Brunei, responsible for dealing with revenue from oil and gas through the state body Brunei Investment Agency (BIA), of which Prince Jefri was chairman.
    He denies the charges but in 2000 agreed to turn over his personal holdings to the government, in return for avoiding criminal prosecution and being allowed to keep a personal residence in Brunei.
    More Details Hide Details After numerous legal disputes and appeals, in 2007 Britain's Privy Council ruled that this agreement is enforceable. His various legal issues with the Bruneian state have become the most expensive legal case in British legal history. Prince Jefri is known for his extravagant lifestyle. His personal holdings included a huge art collection, the British jeweller Asprey, The New York Palace Hotel, Hotel Bel-Air in Los Angeles and Plaza Athénée in Paris. He is married to three wives and divorced from two others and has eighteen children. Prince Jefri is the youngest brother of His Majesty Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu'izzaddin Waddaulah (the 29th Sultan of Brunei and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam).
  • THIRTIES
  • 1986
    Age 31
    Prince Jefri was the finance minister of his oil-rich country from 1986 to 1998. He also served as chairman of the Brunei Investment Agency (BIA) which invests much of the country's wealth and was responsible for overseas investments. In the wake of the 1997 Asian Financial Crisis, the sultan had external accountants audit the books of BIA, resulting in charges by the Brunei government that Prince Jefri had embezzled $14.8 billion.
