Class action filed against Asia Packaging Group Inc. and directors and auditors
CALGARY, April 30, 2014 /CNW/ - Jensen Shawa Solomon Duguid Hawkes LLP (JSS
Barristers) has filed a class action proceeding against Vancouver-based Asia
Packaging Group Inc. (TSX-V: APX), Robert Wilson, Brian Birmingham, Jin Kuang,
Michael E.D. Raymont, George Dorin and Manning Elliott LLP.
The action is brought on behalf of shareholders who bought APX shares between
April 26, 2011 and the halt of trading in the shares on November 6, 2013. JSS
Barristers has filed a Statement of Claim in the Alberta Court of Queen's
Bench in Calgary, as a national class action. A separate claim, for BC
investors, has been filed with the British Columbia Supreme Court in Vancouver.
Prior to trading in APX's shares being halted, the company's sole material
assets were wholly owned foreign companies in China. The Statement of Claim
alleges that APX and its directors failed to secure proper control over those
subsidiaries and their operations, including their boards of directors,
corporate seals and records, and bank accounts. The Claim alleges that in the
fall of 2103 APX lost complete control of its Chinese assets. As a result,
the company can no longer operate or pay its bills. The claim further alleges
that Class Members have lost the entire value of their investment.
This claim alleges that APX's former directors and auditors have breached
their duties, and that they made misrepresentations regarding the true state
of affairs of APX.
The Statement of Claim seeks damages for losses suffered by investors in the
amount of $9,000,000, plus other relief including costs and interest.
