A wealthy Iranian businessman is waiting to hear whether he has won a divorce court fight with his estranged Irish wife.

Diplomat’s son Mehrdad Radseresht, 72, says Barbara Spain-Radseresht, who is 49 and used to work in the travel industry, agreed to a divorce when they lived in the Middle East more than seven years ago.

Mrs Spain-Radseresht, who comes from Dublin and now lives in London, disputes his claim and says she is entitled to a fair share of a marital fortune running into tens of millions of pounds.

A High Court judge has been asked to make decisions about the validity of the marriage.

Mr Justice Cohen has finished analysing evidence at a trial in the Family Division of the High Court in London and is scheduled to deliver a ruling on Friday.

Mr Radseresht says they reached a divorce settlement agreement in Dubai in 2009 after Mrs Spain-Radseresht was unfaithful.

She said she only found out about the ’’alleged Dubai divorce’’ a year ago when she made a separate divorce application.
