Dissatisfied with the judgment handed against it by a Federal High Court in Lagos, Emirates has already appealed the judgment.
The airline, in a statement and made available to New Telegraph, said it would vigorously defend its position on the matter.
According to the carrier: “Emirates has already filed an appeal in this matter and we will be vigorously defending our position.”
Emirates was on Monday ordered to pay $1.36 million to a businessman, Mr Orji Prince Ikem, being the amount contained in his hand luggage which went missing in the airline’s custody during his trip to China in 2007.
Justice Muslim Hassan of a Federal High Court in Lagos Monday handed down the judgment in the businessman’s nearly 12-year legal battle with the airline to recover his two hand luggage containing personal effects and $700,000, as well as $930,000 in 18 bundles of $50,000 wraps each and $30,000 cash not wrapped.
