Newcastle United Co-Owner Amanda Staveley Appeals £3.4m Payment Order

Amanda Staveley Fights Against Payment to Greek Tycoon

Newcastle United co-owner Amanda Staveley is appealing an order to pay £3.4 million to Greek shipping tycoon Victor Restis. Staveley was given until Monday to transfer the money or face a court bankruptcy petition.

Staveley's Ownership at Risk

The payment, if made, could disqualify Staveley, who owns a 6% stake in Newcastle United and is worth £110 million, from being a director at the club.

Legal Battle Continues

Despite an initial bid to dismiss the case being rejected, Staveley has now filed documents at the High Court seeking an appeal, which is expected to be heard later this year.

Origin of the Dispute

The dispute revolves around a £10 million payment made by Restis to Staveley in 2008, with Restis now seeking £37 million in return, including a £31 million interest payment, a figure deemed "exorbitant" by Staveley's legal team.

Previous Ruling and Response

Insolvency Judge Daniel Schaffer had previously dismissed Staveley's case, stating it ventured into the "realm of fantasy." Staveley's spokesperson mentioned she does not accept this ruling and will continue to pursue the appeal in the Chancery Division later this year.
