46. Article 55 makes it clear that the right holder applying for suspension of infringing goods must initiate a proceeding on the merits in an appropriate forum within a reasonable period of time or the goods will be released. Please identify the fora in which an applicant/party may initiate proceedings on the merits that will allow customs authorities to hold the goods beyond ten working days.
The Courts which would have jurisdiction would be the High Court and the Magistrates Courts. The value of the goods forming the subject-matter of any action before such Court would generally determine which Court would have jurisdiction to hear the matter.
