Digicel awarded EUR 249 mln in lawsuit against Orange

Friday 19 June 2020 | 13:11 CET | News
A ruling by the Paris court of appeal has awarded Digicel EUR 249 million in damages and interest in a long-running legal battle against Orange's Caribbean subsidiary, reports Capital. In February 2018, Orange decided to appeal a verdict ruling that Digicel was entitled to a compensation payment, set at EUR 346 million. Since then, Digicel reportedly made a case to receive an additional EUR 80 million, arguing that the interest due had been underestimated.
