Expo court sits until end April

THE Expo Court, which was set up to deal with the civil and commercial cases related to the World Expo 2010, will continue to sit until the end of April next year.

That is when the last exhibits are removed, and judges expect more lawsuits until then, they said yesterday.

Ding Shouxing, director of the Pudong New Area People's Court that governs the Expo Court, said disputes about equipment leases, project contracts, personal injuries and labor contracts are expected to rise when the pavilions and exhibits are removed.

The Expo Court received a lawsuit from the Shanghai branch of Inner Mongolia Yili Industrial Group Co Ltd, the dairy sponsor of the Expo, on November 1.

Yili sued the manager of the restaurant in the Greece Pavilion, asking for the delayed payment of more than 300,000 yuan (US$45,181).

Under the judge's mediation, the defendant paid all the money 12 days later.

"We protect the rights of all people," said Chen Xueming, director of the Expo Court.

To date, the court has handled 115 cases.
