Murder mystery delays R17m insurance payout by Discovery Life to victim’s partner.

Alexander Klencovljevic, 29,  had been in a permanent relationship, living “as a married couple” with mega-millionaire Jeffery Mark Wiggill, 54, for nine years – bringing up five children together – when Wiggill was murdered on 19 June last year. For the past year Discovery Life has been desperately trying to hold off having to pay out R17 million on the two life policies they sold to Wiggill in 2005 and 2010.

Klencovljevic recently launched a high court application to force the insurer to pay out on the two claims where he is the major nominated beneficiary. In court papers he states that during their relationship, Wiggill adopted four children, now aged between three and 18, while Klencovljevic himself adopted a fifth child, now aged six. He needs the money to support them.

Yet another dodgy insurer doing its dodgy best to avoid honouring (if I might use that term in connection with an insurer) its liabilities to the insured's beneficiaries.
