Court orders seizure of select cash machines of HNB

Comments / {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}} Views / Monday, 22 January 2018 01:20


The Commercial High Court Colombo has issued a stay order against Hatton National Bank to suspend the operations of several cash deposit machines with immediate effect. 

The order was issued in case number 01/2018/ IP by intellectual property owner One and Only Ltd. on the submissions made by Attorney-at-Law Mohamed Nazar.

Despite the order, the bank has been operating the machines, prompting the intellectual property right owner to file a case in the Colombo Magistrate Courts bearing no. 87162/6/18. Thereafter, the Court issued an order to seize the machines last week.

Original contention is on four cash deposit machines and HNB’s Kotahena branch cash deposit machine was sealed by the Registrar of the Magistrate Court of Colombo. 

The plaintiff is to file for seizure of four more machines. Both cases will be taken up today for further submissions on the dispute.

The late John F. Kennedy described politics as a “noble adventure, an adventure in which one joins hands with the masses for the service of man”. Not that the Kennedys didn’t play “politricks” in their heyday. But playing “politricks” w
