Kampala: On June, 23, 2020, Court of Appeal in Kampala dismissed an appeal filed against city businessman Dr. Sudhir Ruparelia by Bank of Uganda and defunct Crane Bank in receivership, contesting Justice David Wangutusi’s 2019 ruling, in which he declared that BoU illegally wound up Crane Bank and sold it to DFCU bank under dubious circumstances.

Following the ruling, BoU Governor prof.Tumusiime Mutebile announced that matters would only be resolved by the Supreme Court. Meanwhile, the matter earlier this week on November 9, 2020, was finally brought to a conclusion, leaving BoU in more sorrows and regrets after the their application was thrown out disgracefully, with costs valued in millions.

Background Of The Case

On June 30, 2017, Crane Bank Limited (in Receivership) took Mr. Sudhir Ruparelia and his Meera Investments Ltd. to court for allegedly causing financial loss amounting to UGX 397 billion to Crane Bank in fraudulent transactions and land title transfers.

Crane Bank (in receivership) in its Civil Suit No. 493 of 2017 sought High Court to compel Mr. Ruparelia to pay back the US$80,000,000, US$9,270,172.00, US $ 3,560,000.00, US$990,000.00 and UGX 52,083,995.00 as compensation for breach of fiduciary duty.

While Hon. Justice Wangutusi dismissed the UGX397 billion case against Mr. Ruperalia on a technicality, alleging that Crane Bank (in Receivership) lost its powers to “sue” and to “be sued”, thus rendering its suit a nullity, Crane Bank (in Receivership) maintains that receivership is a management situation, and hence no legal change as to capacity of a company to sue and be sued.
