It really is Feel Good Friday today as we finish off ANOTHER incredibly successful week for CLA and our clients with a huge Anfi victory for our Swiss clients!!
The court of the First Instance SBT5 made a clear and definite ruling in which they declared ALL THREE of our clients contracts with Anfi null and void and demanded back the FULL REPAYMENT OF 208.669€ PLUS INTEREST PLUS LEGAL FEES – THAT’S A WHOPPING 40.000€ MORE THAN THEY ORIGINALLY PAID!!!
In passing sentence the Judged demanded repayment of 117.072€ in respect of amounts paid on the contracts PLUS AN ADDITIONAL 91.597€ in respect of deposits taken illegally within the statutory cooling off period taking our clients total awarded amount to 208.669€ PLUS INTEREST PLUS LEGAL FEES – our second highest Anfi victory.
As we have stated many times before, the taking of deposits within the statutory cooling off period is illegal and the law dictates that these amounts should be repaid in DOUBLE. As you can see from this claim it can make a BIG DIFFERENCE to the amounts awarded by the court. Our clients will be receiving 40.000€ MORE THAN THEY PAID!!
Of course, we fully expect Anfi to appeal this decision and of course, we fully expect that this appeal will fail…….
So, as a matter of standard practice, CLA will apply to the court for a provisional execution of these funds. This will force Anfi to deposit these funds with the court thereby securing them 100% for our clients until the sentence is confirmed by the High Court.
Congratulations to our Swiss clients and to our Claims Consultant Evi Richter and our Lawyers Eva Gutierrez and Christine Ihmann.
