Enjoining order issued against Chinese firm over organic fertiliser

The Ceylon Fertiliser Company Limited has obtained an enjoining order from the Commercial High Court against Chinese Qingdao Seawin Biotech Group Co. Ltd, its local agent and a state bank in relation to the importation of a stock of organic fertiliser.

Under the enjoining order, the relevant state bank will not be able to make any payments under a Letter of Credit opened on behalf of the Chinese company.

The Commercial High Court issued an injunction order restraining the Chinese firm and its local agent from receiving any payment under the Letter of Credit.

The National Plant Quarantine Service had reportedly tested the sample sent to them and confirmed it to contain harmful bacteria and other organisms.
