Following a judgment of the court, the first, second and fourth defendants were held liable to the first claimant in relation to a fraudulent operation of letters of credit. A receiver was appointed. The second defendant subsequently brought a claim against the claimants and the receiver alleging that he had suffered loss as a result of the liquidation of a company (SCILDV).
