ANOTHER VICTORY FOR THE HSAG WITH APPEAL DATE RETAINED!

Since the President of the Supreme Court of Appeal (SCA) issued a directive for the expedited date of hearing the appeal, Mr Nic Georgiou and others once again tried to delay the Court process, by informing the Registrar that their advocates were not available on 8 May 2018.

Orthotouch’s attorneys requested that the date be postponed to another date.

Without first obtaining such permission from the SCA Registrar, Orthotouch’s legal representatives arranged a new date with the HSAG’s councel and then consulted with the Registrar without the HSAG attorneys present, to which our legal team objected.

Both Orthotouch and Mr Georgiou’s advocates are new on the matters and new counsel could easily be briefed for the hearing date without much inconvenience.

The President of the SCA issued a further directive:

  1. The Appellants must serve and file their Heads of Argument on or before 16 March 2018;
  2. The HSAG must serve and file its Heads of Argument on or before 23 March 2018;
  3. The President of the SCA did not entertain the Appellants request to postpone the Appeal date, thus the Appeals are still to be heard on 8 May 2018.

We will keep you updated.

NOG ‘N OORWINNING VIR DIE HSAG TEN AANSIEN VAN DIE APPÈLDATUM!

Sedert die President van die Hoogste Hof van Appèl (HHA) ‘n aanwysing uitgereik het met betrekking tot die aanhoor van die Appèlle op ‘n bespoedigde basis, het Mnr Georgiou en ander weereens probeer om die Hofproses uit te rek deur die Registrateur van die HHA in kennis te stel dat hul Advokate nie op 8 Mei 2018 beskikbaar is nie.

Orthotouch se prokureurs het derhalwe versoek dat die datum uitgestel moet word.

Sonder om toestemming van die Registrateur van die HHA te verkry, het Orthotouch se prokureurs die HSAG se regsverteenwoordigers genader ten einde ‘n nuwe Appèldatum te kry en het ook die Registrateur besoek, sonder dat die HSAG prokureurs teenwoordig was, waarop ons beswaar gemaak het.

Beide Orthotouch en Mnr Georgiou se advokate was nuut aangestel en kon hulle sonder moeite en enige ontwrigting nuwe advokate aanstel.

Die President van die HHA het gevolglik nuwe aanwysings uitgereik:

  1. Die Appèllante moet hul Hoofde van Betoog beteken en liasseer voor of op 16 Maart 2018;
  2. Die HSAG moet hul Hoofde van Betoog beteken en liasseer voor of op 23 Maart 2018;
  3. Die President van die HHA het nie gehoor gegee aan Mnr Georgiou se versoek om die Appèldatum te skuif nie en word die Appèlle steeds op 8 Mei 2018 aangehoor.

Ons hou u op hoogte.
