The court appointed G.K.

Touchwood on 23 June has filed a notice of appeal in the Supreme Court against the Colombo Commercial High Court's judgment given against the firm to liquidate.

President's Counsel Nihal Fernando will appear for Touchwood Investments, PLC in the Supreme Court while Mr. Sanath Wijayawardena is the new instructing attorney for the fir, Touchwood said in a stock market disclosure.

Touchwood, which managed a forestry investment scheme where investors were promised high returns from teak, mahogany and other plantations, has been in financial trouble for some time.
