KRS Kovacs Reti Szegheo has successfully represented the liquidator of Buda-Cash against Saxo Bank in the Metropolitan Regional Court in Hungary, after the Danish bank blocked Buda-Cash's customers' money. During the procedure, Saxo Bank was advised by Oppenheim, Budapest.
According to the court's decision, Saxo Bank is obliged to pay the applicant — the Buda-Cash liquidator — HUF 1.17 billion and EUR 2.54 million, with defaults and interest, and it must also return Buda-Cash' securities.
According to the decision, Buda-Cash has won 79% and Saxo Bank 21%, and the costs of the trial must be shared in this proportion. The court's decision is not final and may be appealed within 15 days.
