As summarized in a 2009 report by Transparency International UK, "Civil proceedings were brought by Zambia in the High Court against Dr. Chiluba and nineteen of his alleged associates. The case in the London civil courts concerned three separate claims: The Zamtrop Conspiracy...The MOFED Claim...[which] ultimately failed...[and] The BK Conspiracy....On May 4, 2007, Zambia obtained judgment against Dr. Chiluba and some of his co-defendants for about U.S. $46 million. Judgment was obtained against Dr. Chiluba's lawyer Iqbal Meer....However, on 31 July 2008 Mr Meer successfully appealed the judgment against him, persuading the Court of Appeal that he had not known or suspected the dishonesty of his clients."
