Arif Naqvi, the founder of Abraaj Group, has reached a settlement on a claim that he bounced a $48 million check, the Wall Street Journal reported. Naqvi faced a potential three-year prison sentence if convicted on charges he issued checks with insufficient funds in Sharjah, one of the United Arab Emirates’ seven federated states, the story said.
