HC seeks Future Retail’s stand on Amazon plea to set aside court’s observations against it


PTI, Jan 13, 2021, 1:26 PM IST

New Delhi: The Delhi High Court Wednesday sought response of Kishore Biyani-led Future Retail Limited (FRL) on Amazon’s plea challenging the prima facie observations by a single judge that the US e-commerce giant’s attempt to control the Indian entity was violative of FEMA and FDI rules.

A bench of Chief Justice DN Patel and Justice Jyoti Singh issued notice to FRL, Reliance Retail and the Biyanis seeking their stand on the plea by Amazon against some of the observations by the single judge in a December 21, 2020, interim order.

Amazon, in its appeal, has sought setting aside the observations as they have a bearing on its case in arbitration proceedings that were initiated before the Singapore International Arbitration Centre (SIAC).

It has contended that the observations are inconsistent with the findings in the SIAC emergency arbitral (EA) order of October 25, 2020, against FRL’s asset sale under a Rs 24,713 crore deal with Reliance Retail.

It has contended in its appeal that the observations in the December 21, 2020 order “effectively resulted in allowing FRL to collaterally bypass the EA order.”
