The enjoining orders already obtained by E-Channelling PLC against Dialog Axiata PLC and Nawaloka Hospitals PLC from the Commercial High Court of Colombo were extended at yesterday’s court hearing.
The enjoining order against Dialog was obtained preventing the latter from utilising confidential information supplied by E-Chanelling to develop and/ or commercially launch a rival IT system for customers and/ or the public to channel doctors and/ or medical professionals through their mobile telephones pending the final hearing and determination of the application for the interim injunction.
