FRU stay request rejected

By SHALVEEN CHAND
Saturday, February 22, 2014

AN application for a stay of proceedings filed by the Fiji Rugby Union was refused by the High Court yesterday.

FRU made the stay application on an injunction filed by mobile service provider Digicel after Rugby House opted to sign a sponsorship deal with the Vodafone consortium.

In the application, FRU lawyer Nilesh Lajendra submitted the contract between Digicel and FRU had a clause which stated the two parties would go to arbitration should there be a fallout between them.

Justice Kamal Kumar ruled the court was more suited to resolve the matters between FRU and Digicel.

In his ruling he stated that now there were new players in the picture, the court would be more suited.

The case will be called on Tuesday.

Vodafone and the consortium of companies have filed a joint application to be also listed as a vested party, an application opposed by Digicel.

This matter will be dealt with first before the court proceeds to the injunction hearing.
