CEPEP application in Tora Bora case dismissed

CEPEP's application to set aside judgement after failing to comply with a court order and pay nearly $2 million owed to Tora Bora Construction was dismissed by Madam Justice Kangaloo, with costs, when the matter came up for hearing Monday. 

Tora Bora initiated execution proceedings which resulted in the Court Marshal seizing CEPEP’s Computers, furniture and vehicles. CEPEP owes the contractor $1,962,947.36 since March/April 2015 for work remedial works done on the St Joseph Health Centre in St Joseph. 

Madam Justice Kangaloo ruled that CEPEP had failed to show that it had a reasonable prospect of success in defending Tora Bora’s Claim and further that it did not act promptly in moving the Court to set aside Tora Bora’s Judgment.

Jagdeo Singh, Dinesh Rambally, Kiel Taklalsingh and Criston J. Williams instructed by Desirée E. Sankar appeared for Tora Bora. Imtiaz Mohammed was present before the Court as a representative for Tora Bora.

Farai Hove-Masaisai held for Phillip Lamont instructed by Hove and Associates which was represented by Kevon Charles and Jamel Watch. Laura Achong, Corporate Secretary of CEPEP was present before the Court.

Costs are to be paid by CEPEP as assessed by a Registrar of the Court.
