High Court upholds Civil Court ruling against Meridian Services

The Maldivian High Court has upheld the Civil Court ruling that the State Trading Organization (STO) had not acted against the law in limiting the credit amount of fuel released to Meridian Services, and decreasing the duration within which the company needs to pay back the owed money to STO.

Meridian Services had appealed the case at the High Court alleging that the Civil Court sentence was against legal principles.

The case was presided over by High Court judges Abdulla Hameed, Abdul Rauf Ibrahim, and Shuaib Hussain Zakariya.
