Neutrality of stakeholder

                If a stakeholder applies for relief by way of interpleader, the Court will dismiss the application unless the Court is satisfied that the stakeholder:

               (b)    has not colluded with any claimant.

Note    This rule does not affect the Court's power to dismiss the application or to pronounce judgment against the stakeholder for other reasons.
