Winson Group seeks SGD 30.4 million from Standard Chartered over HLT related trade

18 Jun 2020

Singapore-based oil trading firm Winson Group is taking legal action against Standard Chartered Bank (Singapore) over an unpaid letter of credit worth SGD 30.4 million issued for a diesel cargo it sold to Hin Leong Trading (HLT), reports Reuters.

Available court documents purportedly showed that Winson Group obtained a letter of credit from Standard Chartered in early April when it sold a cargo of ultra-low sulphur diesel to HLT.

Subsequently, when the letter of credit was due in May, the bank did not honour the payments and therefore Winson Group is taking action to seek damages, costs and interest from the bank.
