City tycoon Hamis Kiggundu has appealed against the Court of Appeals’ decision to cancel the refund of more than 120 billion shillings to him.
Earlier on, the commercial court had ordered Diamond Trust Bank Uganda and Kenya to refund more than 120 billion shillings to Ugandan businessman Hamis Kiggundu. However, this decision was nullified by the court of appeal.
The initial decision was passed by Judge Henry Peter Adonyo, however, in the 5th May court of appeal ruling by Deputy Chief Justice Richard Buteera, Kenneth Kakuru and Christopher Izama Madrame, the decision was declared void and for the case to be tried before another judge.
In the case, Hamis Kiggundu had accused the banks’ Uganda and Kenya accounts of withdrawing money from his accounts without his concent and the first judge, Adonyo had dismissed the bank’s defense asking then to refund the client right away.
The bank then sought a second judgement from the court of the appeal to which the initial judgement was nullified and a new judge to handle the matter was recommended since the first judgement was made basing on only the accounts of one of the parties.
In relation to this, Hamis Kiggundu through his lawyers Muwema and Company advocates decided to file for an appeal again the court of appeal ruling as they realized a notice reading;
“Take notice that Ham Enterprises Limited and two others, being dissatisfied with the decision of Honorable Justice Christopher Madrama, Honorable Justice Kenneth Kakuru, and Honorable Justice Richard Buteera given at Kampala on May 5th, 2021 intend to appeal to the Supreme Court against the whole decision.”
