Court dismisses injunction

THE interlocutory injunction by the mobile service provider Digicel against the sponsorship deal between Fiji Rugby Union and the Vodafone consortium has been dismissed and struck out.

Digicel had filed for the injunction on January 31 after getting wind that Vodafone was signing a deal with FRU.

In its notice of motion, Digicel wanted an order for FRU to acknowledge Digicel's matching offer of sponsorship, an order for FRU to execute a memorandum of agreement with Digicel and an order restricting FRU from entering into a sponsorship deal with any other party.

Justice Kamal Kumar, in his ruling, said Digicel wanted the injunction so it could continue to sponsor FRU products.

He said if the injunction was granted then FRU would not have a sponsor and it would be detrimental to the sport.
