A report from the St Lucia Times.

Saint Lucian, Kent Adonai, has been awarded a multi-million pound fortune after a long legal battle, the Mail On Sunday has reported.

The legal battle was over the estate of Adonai’s late employer, Colin Tennant, the third Lord Glenconner, who died eight years ago at the age of 83.

The case involved Lord Glenconner’s grandson and heir to the title, Cody Tennant, 24, and Adonai.

It was settled in the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court, the Mail said.

According to the online publication, Adonai has inherited 27 acres of prime beachfront property, called the Beau Estate, ripe for development.

It quoted him as saying that he will shortly put the property on the market for £22.5 million.

The Mail said despite inheriting a fortune, Adonai said Saturday that he had not ended up with the correct share.

‘His main complaint is how long the case has taken while his main assets were tied up in the land, forcing him back to his former occupation of fisherman to provide for his family of seven children. He said that if he had had access to funds he would have fought the case more vigorously,’ it reported.
