Horse-owner loses pounds 1m in jewels

Click to follow
A stolen jewellery collection valued at more than pounds 1m belongs to the Lebanese racehorse owner, Fathi Kalla, police said yesterday.

Mr Kalla, whose horse Corrupt was a favourite in the 1991 Derby, declined publicity to help retrieve the gems for fear of becoming the target of yet another raid. The jewellery had been removed from a safe box and brought to the house for the engagement party of Mr Kalla's eldest daughter, which will go ahead next Thursday, police said. The jewels were not insured.
