Court Awards US$76K against Chinese Company

first_imgThe commercial court at the Temple of Justice has ruled against Lichi Incorporated, a Chinese sand mining company, ordering it to pay US$76,892 plus six percent interest to several of its workers.The court took the decision last Tuesday in the absence of the company’s representatives.Although throughout the trial the company’s lawyers questioned the credibility some of the witnesses who testified during the case, Judge Richard Klah said: “Having examined the evidence and documents, I found Lichi guilty and they must therefore pay the workers U$76,892 plus statutory interest of six percent.’’ Before Judge Klah’s decision, he asked the court to enter a default judgement against the company since none of its representatives were present in court.In their suit, the workers alleged that from October 2012 to June 2013, they entered into a memorandum of understanding (MOU) under which they supplied a total of 4,586 loads of river sand to the company, and that under the agreement the company was to pay US$22 for each of the load of sand totalling U$76,892. The company, however, refused to pay despite several negotiations, which led to the suit and the subsequent judgment for the plaintiffs.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
