The House of Bolkiah is the ruling royal family of Brunei. The Sultan of Brunei and Prime Minister of Brunei Hassanal Bolkiah was once the worlds wealthiest person.[1] The Sultanate is propped up by a British garrison for "protection". In return, the oil wealth ends up in London.

Prince Jefri

The brother of Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah, Prince Jefri Bolkiah "has probably gone through more cash than any other human being on earth", Vanity Fair reported.[2]

He bought colossal diamonds for his numerous consorts and collected 2300 luxury cars, including Ferraris, Rolls Royces and Bentleys. Jefri owned a helicopter and eight airplanes including a private Boeing 747, and bought paintings by Renoir, Manet and Degas. Through his 200 companies, he bought more than 500 properties including a collection of five-star hotels.[3]

Jefri housed a large number of foreign women in the grounds of Brunei’s royal estate and paid them around $2000 a week. The women, who were also given jewellery, were required to attend Prince Jefri’s parties where he entertained his male friends.[3]

After buying Asprey, London jeweller to the Queen for $385m, he commissioned erotic fountain pens and jewel encrusted watches depicting couples having sex, each worth $1.3m.[3]

The finance minister of his oil-rich country from 1986 to 1998, Jefri also was chairman of the Brunei Investment Agency. The BIA invested much of the country’s wealth, but after the Asian Financial Crisis in 1997 was audited by the Brunei Government resulting in allegations Jefri had embezzled $14.8 billion. He denied the charges, but in 2000 agreed to relinquish his assets and avoided prosecution.[3]
