[1]        The respondent issued summons out of the High Court seeking an order for the release of its plastic bags which were being retained by the appellant, payment of the sum of US$157 350.05 representing the business it lost as a result of such retention and costs of suit on the scale of legal practitioner and client.  The respondent also sought payment of interest from the date of issue of summons to the date of payment in full.
