The wife of Oman's foreign minister, Nora Al-Daher, lost her claim against London's Ritz Hotel over an alleged gambling addiction. In 2012, the Ritz sued Ms. Al-Daher to recover £1 million credit advanced to her to gamble which she did not pay. When the Ritz sought recovery of the debt, Ms. Al-Daher counter-sued in negligence, claiming that the Casino breached its duty of care to her by giving her credit when they were aware that she had a gambling addiction. In one evening, she lost £2 million at the Ritz Casino and two months later, lost $5 million at Las Vegas casinos. She is married to Sayyid Badr bin Hamad bin Hamood Al-Busaidi. She and her husband are politically exposed persons, meaning that financial institutions globally are required to subject their financial transactions with heighted due diligence and monitor their transactions on an on-going basis.
