Court halts $250m UAE bank payment to Global

Abu Dhabi, June 29, 2011

National Bank of Umm Al Qaiwain (NBQ) said a Dubai court has halted a decision asking the Abu Dhabi-listed lender to pay $250 million to Kuwait's Global Investment House pending a September hearing.   

In April, Global won a ruling to get back $250 million from NBQ in addition to interest of $54.6 million.

"The court issued its decision to stop executing the sentence until a hearing about the appeal coming from NBQ that will take place on Tuesday, September 20," the lender said in a bourse statement on Wednesday.

The $250 million was a deposit placed by Global with NBQ in August 2008 for a National Bank convertible bond issue. Global later cancelled the planned purchase and wanted the money back, but NBQ decided it was entitled to keep it. - Reuters
