The jurisdiction of Tribunals are found in special law and if not found in the law, then the courts should adopt their general jurisdiction of the case before it. This was held in Corporate & Commercial FX Services Limited -v- Satabank plc decided by the First Hall of the Civil Courts presided by Judge Miriam Hayman on 1 April 2022. Satabank had filed applica- tion in order for this case for damages be transferred to the Appeals Board regulated by the Controlled Company (Procedure for Liquidation) Act, chapter 383 of the Laws of Malta. Corporate & Commercial FX Services Limited (CCFX) ob- jected to this. Article 13 of the Controlled Company (Procedure for Liq- uidation) Act reads: "13. All cases and claims pending before the Civil Court, First Hall, and being cases and claims against the Controller of a controlled asset in respect of which an order for liquida- tion under this Act has been made, shall be transferred to the Appeals Board and shall continue to be heard and de- termined by such Board: 5Provided that nothing con- tained in this Act shall detract from the jurisdiction of the Court of Appeal to continue to hear any case pending be- fore it: Provided further than the Controller shall have the pow- er to refer any matter to arbi- tration under such terms and conditions as he may deem fit, and any matter so referred, as well as any matter referred to arbitration prior to the com- ing into force of this Act, shall be heard and decided by and in accordance with the terms of reference to arbitration not- withstanding the provisions of this Act." CCFX argued that the case before the court is purely a damages case, after the bank took certain actions against the company. These actions brought about loss of prof- its. The company argued that the action does not fall un- der those incidents which the law provides for the case to be transferred to the Appals Board. Article 10 of the Act lists the following: "10.(1) The Board shall have the sole and exclusive juris- diction to hear and determine: (a) any appeal made from any determination of any claim by the Controller; (b) any claim made by the Controller against a third par- ty including any claim for the delivery of any property held by third persons; (c) any matter related to, or arising from, the report and scheme of distribution pub- lished by the Controller; (d) any claim made against any Controller arising in whatsoever manner from the administration and liquida- tion of any assets under his control. (2) The Board shall also have the sole and exclusive jurisdiction to enforce any de- cision made by it as well as any judgment delivered by a com- petent court in Malta against the Controller" The Court quoted a previous case Dr Michele Martone pro et noe -v- Raymond Gatt noe, decided on 12 March 2007. In this judgement the Court held that Tribunals have jurisdic- tion from special law. Article 10 of the Controlled Company (Procedure for Liquidation) Act lists the powers of the Board of Appeal. The Chair- man of the Board must be a lawyer with 12 years' experi- ence. This list found in Article 10 is complete and cannot be increased. Cases found in Ar- ticle 10 are the exclusive juris- diction of the Board of Appeal, if not then it is in the hands of the court. The case before the court does not lie within one of the cases mentioned in Article 10. The plaintiff company is ask- ing the court to order the bank to release fonds in its account and that the damages caused because the authorities sus- pended the bank's activities. Therefore, the plaintiff com- pany is seeking damages for negligence. The Court turned down the case. Tribunals are set up by special laws LAW REPORT MALCOLM MIFSUD Mifsud & Mifsud Advocates CLASSIFIEDS INFO @MEDIATODAY.COM.MT
