Wisynco Group Limited (“Wisynco”) withdrew the claim it filed against the Heart Foundation of Jamaica (“HFJ”) on May 1, 2018, after the HFJ filed its defence on April 30, 2018.
In its defence, the HFJ not only admitted that it ‘inadvertently and unintentionally’ included Wisynco’s brand, ‘CranWata’ in a post related to their campaign, but went further to advise that they had taken the necessary steps to ensure the post is no longer accessible on the internet. The HFJ also stated that it does not intend to ‘publish, republish, post or repost’ the offending material.
Wisynco accepts the HFJ’s sworn statement and acknowledges the related steps it has taken. Consequently, Wisynco sees no need to pursue its claim against the HFJ and has not only withdrawn it but has also offered to underwrite the HFJ’s legal expenses associated with the claim.
Wisynco values its longstanding reputation of good corporate citizenry through its various brands. Our initiatives such as hosting lifestyle workshops and workouts with several fitness experts have long promoted healthy lifestyles for our consumers and the wider nation. In fact, promoting a healthy lifestyle is one of our core values and we certainly look forward to continuing and even strengthening our efforts to improve the lives of Jamaicans.
