Digicel withdraws civil claim against Bluesky
Digicel Samoa has withdrawn a civil claim against Bluesky in relation to a dispute between the parties during the historical Manu Samoa vs All Blacks game last year.
Digicel made an application to withdraw their claim in the Supreme Court yesterday.
It was not clear how much the civil claim was but lawyer for Digicel, Su'a Helene Wallwork, said the matter has been “resolved between the parties”.
“What I can tell you is that a Digicel proceeding against Bluesky has been discontinued,” Su'a told the Samoa Observer.
“The matter has been resolved between the parties and the (civil) mention is to formalise that.”
Pressed about the details of the claim, Su’a declined.
“All I can say is the proceedings have been discontinued and there is nothing more to comment on.”
Late last year, the office of the Regulator ordered Bluesky and the Samoa Rugby Union to apologise publicly to Digicel following an investigation into a complaint lodged by Digicel over interference with its network at Apia Park.
On the second part of the order from Regulator, Unutoa Auelua Fonoti, was for Bluesky and S.R.U. to provide a formal and written undertaking to the regulator to the effect that both parties will not engage in anti-competitive practice and/or conduct to avoid recurrence in the future of infringements such as that which took place at Apia Park on 8 July 2015.
