Toolsie Persaud Ltd brothers battle over company shares

first_img…CCJ rules Appeal Court must hear caseHaving dismissed an appeal filed by the minority shareholder of Toolsie Persaud Limited against the company for the purchasing of shares, the Appeal Court of Guyana has been ordered by the Caribbean Court of Justice to hear the matter.The CCJ announced on Friday that despite procedural errors, the case must be dealt with impartially. Christopher Persaud would have filed an appeal at the CCJ on behalf of his deceased father and minority shareholder in the company, David Persaud, after the Appeal Court dismissed the case. David Persaud owned 33.3 per cent of Toolsie Persaud Limited, a multimillion-dollar company with interests in quarrying, hardware and timber.Being the minority shareholder, he had filed a complainant oppression action, against his brother and the majority shareholder, Toolsie Persaud.After his father’s passing, Christopher Persaud then requested that the company purchase shares of the deceased and that the company be wound up or an interim order be made restraining the sale or disposition of sales.The application was filed under Section 232, in accordance with Section 224 of the Companies Act, which has as its purpose, the restraining of oppressive conduct in companies.While the matter was being heard by Justice Persaud in open court, new Civil Procedure Rules were implemented which allowed oppressive actions to be appealed to the Court of Appeal, instead of the Full Court.After receiving an unfavourable judgment from Justice Persaud, Christopher Persaud appealed the decision before the Court of Appeal. However, the company objected on the basis that the court did not have the authority to hear the appeal.As a result of the objections, Christopher Persaud then went before the Full Court to determine whether this was the case and if it was, that he be given more time to allow him to file the appeal at the Full Court.That case was dismissed and then he filed an appeal against this decision at the Court of Appeal. After being dissatisfied with both courts, Christopher Persaud then placed his faith in the CCJ.While it was raised whether the CCJ had jurisdiction to hear the matter, the Court indicated in the affirmative and stated that, “This Court has an inherent jurisdiction to exercise its discretion to grant special leave in cases where procedural rules have not been strictly followed and where such leave is required in the interest of justice”.Having lost his oppression action in the High Court, the applicant “did all that a diligent litigant could have done to secure his appeal and that every attempt by the applicant to pursue his appeal was met by technical procedural manoeuvres and arguments by the respondents”.Since 2011, the Persaud brothers have battled in court over shares of the company. Initially, David Persaud had asked for an order directing Toolsie Persaud and/or the second named defendant, Toolsie Persaud Limited, to purchase his shares in the capital of the company at a price to be fixed by such a value as may and be agreed upon by the first defendant and/or the second defendant and the plaintiff.last_img read more

Vazquez-Marquez has punch

first_img“He (Roach) formally told us that he is going to be there, that he is going to be in my corner,” said Vazquez, co-promoted by De La Hoya’s Golden Boy Promotions and Sycuan Ringside Promotions. Richard Schaefer, CEO of Golden Boy, sang a different tune. He said the plan right now is for all of Team De La Hoya to leave for camp in Puerto Rico the day after a Feb. 28 Los Angeles news conference that will complete a long De La Hoya-Mayweather press tour. “I have to talk to Oscar and see what his plans are,” Schaefer said. “Maybe he (Roach) stays for the fight. I can’t really answer you one way or another. It’s an Oscar issue. If Oscar wants to start camp on the first (of March), with the whole team flying back together, then, you know…” Yes, we know. That means Roach won’t be in Vazquez’s corner unless De La Hoya says he can stay. Told about this, Vazquez expressed cautious optimism. “I hope Oscar understands that this is a big fight for us,” Vazquez said. “I belong to his company. I also have to prepare. I think this fight is a big fight for the company, for everybody. I hope he will understand and let Freddie stay with me that night.” Israel Vazquez will defend his World Boxing Council super bantamweight belt against the vicious Rafael Marquez on March3 at Home Depot Center in Carson. Vazquez, of Huntington Park via Mexico City, has been in plenty of dangerous fights during his fine career. But this one figures to be the most hazardous, as Marquez is in the top 10 of most respected pound-for- pound polls. Marquez, a longtime bantamweight champion, is moving up in weight, but his knockout ratio makes one expect he will have no problem carrying his power up a weight class. He is 36-3 with 32 knockouts. Frank Espinoza of West Covina is Vazquez’s longtime manager. He expressed concern that Vazquez might be without Roach for Mexico City’s Marquez, who is going to be an extremely tough nut to crack. A win over Marquez would no doubt make Vazquez a top-10, pound-for-pound fighter. “Here you have a Golden Boy fighter in Israel Vazquez,” Espinoza said. “Why wouldn’t they let him (Roach) stay?” Should Roach not make the fight, he will most likely be replaced by Justin Fortune, his assistant at Wild Card. “I guess Israel feels OK with him,” Espinoza said Wednesday. Reached Friday, Espinoza said there had been nothing new to report. Roach did not return two phone calls. Showtime will televise Vazquez-Marquez as well as the main undercard fight between International Boxing Federation flyweight champion Vic Darchinyan and challenger Victor Burgos. The tickets at Home Depot Center will begin at $25, which is about the best bargain in town considering Vazquez-Marquez should be a slugfest from start to finish. That’s all these two know. Moreover, it’s almost a rarity these days to see two top-of-the-line knockout punchers square off with each other. As lead promoter Gary Shaw said, we’ll see the best fighter (Marquez) in the world at 118 pounds facing the best at 122. “These guys get paid,” said Shaw, who promotes Marquez. “If they want the sport to grow, they should take tough fights.” Vazquez (41-3, 30 KOs) and Marquez proclaimed themselves ready, willing and able to give fans a fight to remember. They did so in eerie fashion. “I am going to give my life, if possible, to win this fight,” said Marquez, 31. “Like Rafael said, we are willing to die in the ring if that’s what it takes to win that fight,” said Vazquez, 29. This has fight of the year written all over it. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set!center_img All that said, there is a chance Vazquez will be in the fight of his life without his Hall of Fame trainer, Freddie Roach. Roach, who trains Vazquez out of the Wild Card Gym in Hollywood, is scheduled to leave March 1 with the rest of Team De La Hoya to Puerto Rico, where Roach will train De La Hoya for his May 5 mega fight against Floyd Mayweather Jr. in Las Vegas. Vazquez was asked about the scenario before a news conference Wednesday in downtown Los Angeles promoting his fight. last_img read more

PAT THE COPE WELCOMES ‘STEP FORWARD’ IN REVIEW OF FISHERIES POLICY

first_imgIreland North West MEP Pat the Cope Gallagher who is also a lead negotiator on the Reform of the Common Fisheries Policy for the European Parliament has described the revised mandate of the Council of Ministers on the Reform of the CFP as a “significant and positive step in the right direction concerning the extremely complex problems of discards, regionalisation and capacity management.”Mr. Gallagher was speaking this morning in Brussels following a briefing by Minister Coveney to the European Parliament’s negotiating team on the new mandate of the Council of Ministers. The EU Commissioner for Maritime and Fisheries, Maria Damanaki was also in attendance.Mr Gallagher said: “First and foremost, I would like to pay tribute to the Presidency for their work in progressing this extremely important policy within the Council of Ministers as the new mandate appears to have taken into account many of the important issues for the European Parliament.” Mr. Gallagher confirmed that “the new mandate will allow the Irish Presidency to resume negotiations with the European Parliament and the European Commission, which hopefully will result in a final agreement before the end of June.”Mr. Gallagher stated “At this morning’s meeting, we agreed to consider the 200 page document which we hope to receive later today. We will carefully examine all aspects of the Council position and judge whether the compromise is acceptable in terms of the mandate of the Parliament which was adopted in Plenary in February. The Shadow Rapporteurs will meet this evening and the next trialogue meeting has been scheduled for the 28 May.”Mr. Gallagher said “while the new mandate appears to largely have taken onboard the vast majority of the concerns of the European Parliament including several amendments which I personally put forward.“However, I am deeply disappointed that the Council of Ministers have not included my amendment which seeks to enshrine the Hague Presences into the Basic Regulation. That said, I understand that the Council have not rejected my amendment outright and I will continue to urge my colleagues in the European Parliament to insist on its inclusion. “Also, I will need to examine the text to ascertain whether the Council position supports greater recognition for the small scale, inshore and small island fleets as proposed by me”.  PAT THE COPE WELCOMES ‘STEP FORWARD’ IN REVIEW OF FISHERIES POLICY was last modified: May 15th, 2013 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:PAT THE COPE WELCOMES ‘STEP FORWARD’ IN REVIEW OF FISHERIES POLICYlast_img read more
