6 November 2003

The Auckland High Court resumed its mockery of open justice today, posting on its noticeboards lists of file numbers for cases in the court’s liquidations list, with the names of parties omitted. No lists were made available in the courtroom.

Applications to wind companies up are advertised, usually without the file number, so there is no way from that that an observer can match file & company. To add to the confusion, court staff scrambled today’s 10am & 10.45am lists, ensuring that any reporting from about halfway down the list could not match file number & parties.

When a change to publication of the lists was made several weeks ago, the court purported to be following High Court rule 700J, which concerns the publication of advertisements & other information about liquidation applications.

Instead of checking the status of applications, the court registry elected to make it harder to publish proper & accurate information. However, the court’s masters have made no mention of the status of applications in terms of this rule, and have not suggested – let alone ruled – that no mention be made outside the courtroom of information legitimately gained inside it.

2 applications received special attention today from Master John Faire – the 1st for the lack of advertising when there seemed no reason for such failure, and the 2nd had been adjourned for consideration of stay & restraint applications. Inland Revenue withdrew that application to wind up, and the defendant sought costs against the department.

The IRD’s application had been adjourned to allow issues of stay & restraint of advertising to be resolved. Anna Pollett, for Inland Revenue, said in October a refund was to have been applied to the debt, and the department was considering opposing the stay & restraint applications. This time round, Clode Consulting’s lawyer, Mr Carter, said an associated company, 1 Parliament Street Carpark Ltd, was sold in May and, as a result, a considerable gst refund became due to that company. But there was a delay in processing the refund. “If that had been processed in time these proceedings [against Clode Consulting] would have been unnecessary.” Ms Pollett said she understood the delay was “to do with an investigation under way at the time.”

John & Alicia Todd’s Bilgola Entrprises Ltd and Lambton Quay Books Ltd were wound up – at long last – in the Auckland High Court on Thursday on applications filed in August 1999. Bookshop chain Dymocks Franchise Systems (NSW) Pty Ltd withdrew its applications in April, but were replaced in the action by Penguin Books NZ Ltd. Bilgola was wound up on the grounds that it was in receivership, Lambton Quay Books grounds of indebtedness and that it would be just & equitable. The Official Assignee was appointed liquidator of both.

The Auckland High Court and Inland Revenue have combined to make a mockery of their roles in the pursuit – or otherwise – of justice when it’s come to the attempts to wind up a long-defunct company, Protection & Security Insurance Brokers Ltd (Margaret Watterson & Shirley Watson). A month ago Mrs Watterson told Master John Faire all returns had been filed and the company’s accountant calculated the department owed it a $17,000 refund, and the application to send it into liquidation was adjourned to sort matters out. In court on Thursday, the department’s lawyer, Brett Tantrum, told Master Faire: “There has been no further contact or payment” and the debt had increased. The company’s position was again patiently explained, Master Faire agreed it was implicit in his previous instructions that it was up to the department to make contact, which it hadn’t done – and asked Mrs Watterson for a contact number. After a long morning in which Mr Tantrum was unable to get instructions (he is incapacitated, but the department and Crown solicitors know that and shouldn’t expect the public to wait around on that account), Master Faire adjourned the matter to Thursday 5 June at 10am “to allow time to explore whether all the debts to the commissioner have been paid.” Which is what he’d done a month earlier. The court and Crown solicitor should be up for substantial costs when they deal with the public in this fashion, but there won’t even be solicitor’s costs because the company was represented in court by a director. Master Faire said that on the papers in court the company could be wound up, but that would be a futile exercise if the documents the department apparently hasn’t bothered to check show a debt in the opposite direction.

Best Wholesale Ltd’s application to wind up Coldfield Investments Ltd (Len Ross, also Vehicle Detailing Ltd, Precision Cleaning Co Ltd, Rub-a-Dub Properties Ltd, Rub.Dub Service Station Ltd, Ciel Holdings Ltd, Belanger Carwash NZ Ltd, Botany Downs Carwash Ltd, Globalset Holdings/Investments/Management/Shareholding Ltd, Botany Downs Carwash Ltd, Independent Property Services Ltd and Mandalay Development/Hotel Management Ltd) went to a defended hearing in the Auckland High Court on Thursday, continuing on Friday, outcome not yet checked.
