Amsterdam Courts Provisionally Rule In Favour Of Spar International In Poland Case

Spar International has 'welcomed' the decision of the courts in Amsterdam to provisionally reject a claim by Spar Polska over the termination of its licence agreement in Poland.

In a statement issued by Spar International, the retailer said that in provisional proceedings, the Court took the decision that the termination of the licence agreement was judged to be 'reasonable and fair'.

As a result of the ruling, Spar Polska will be ordered to pay the costs of the provisional proceedings.

Court Decision

'Spar International welcomes the decision of the court in Amsterdam, which follows the granting of a preliminary injunction last week by the Courts in Rzeszów preventing Spar Polska from using Spar International’s trademarks, signs, logos and designations,' Spar International said in a statement.

'Both decisions reinforce Spar International’s position that the license agreement with Spar Polska has been terminated on valid grounds.'

Spar International added that it was confident that the court decision in Amsterdam will be followed by a 'full and final rejection' of all claims of Spar Polska in the pending main proceedings.
