HCMC - Following Grab’s appeal, HCMC-based taxi operator Vinasun has filed an appeal against the ruling of the HCMC People’s Court that did not compel Grab to pay VND36.3 billion (US$1.6 million) in compensation to Vinasun, Thanh Nien Online newspaper reported, citing a representative of the HCMC People’s Court.

According to the court representative, Vinasun filed the appeal two days after the court issued the ruling on the case. It proposed the court amend the first-instance judgment and accept Vinasun’s proposals.

Vinasun reiterated that Grab illegally provides taxi services, causing losses for traditional taxi operators, including Vinasun.

The court had recognized the conclusions of Cuu Long Valuation and Inspection Company on the losses of Vinasun. Vinasun affirmed that there is a causal relationship between Vinasun’s damages and Grab’s violations.

The court’s ruling ordering Grab to pay VND4.8 billion instead of VND41.2 billion in compensation to Vinasun has seriously infringed on Vinasun’s legitimate rights and benefits, the traditional taxi operator noted in its appeal form.

Grab had earlier rejected the court’s decision requiring it to pay VND4.8 billion in compensation to Vinasun.

According to Grab, the HCMC People’s Court has no jurisdiction over the case, so it requested the court to reverse the first-instance judgment and dismiss the case.

If the appellate court does not dismiss the case, it has been requested to amend the first-instance judgment to determine that Grab does not conduct transport business activities and does not violate Decision 24 on the pilot scheme for ride-hailing services and Decree 86 on the auto transport business and its conditions.

The ride-hailing firm also suggested the court should dismiss Vinasun’s lawsuit against Grab as Vinasun was unable to prove the causal relationship between its damages and the alleged violations that it has accused Grab of committing.
