..DATE 25/07/2003

 

MR M EDWARDS on behalf of his father as trustee for the appellant via telephone link

 

MR A M DAUBNEY SC (instructed by Mill Harris & Co) for the respondents

 

WILLIAMS JA:  The notice of appeal in Appeal No 9146 of 2002 was filed on the 3rd of October 2002.  Because the appellant had taken no steps to promote the appeal the matter was listed for mention before the President on the 23rd of May 2003.  She then gave various directions and steps were put in train to have the matter listed for hearing before this Court on the 18th of August 2003.

 

The appellant failed to comply with the directions given by the President and the matter was then further listed for mention before me on the 11th of July 2003.  On that occasion the appellant was represented by Mr Edwards Junior who appeared on his father's behalf.  He then assured me that the outline and appeal book would be filed by today's date, the 25th of July 2003, and on that basis I gave directions to that effect.

 

Those directions have not been complied with and I am not satisfied that the appellants have shown any sufficient reason for failing to comply with directions over a lengthy period of time. 

 

In consequence I order that Appeal No 9146 of 2002 be struck out for want of prosecution. 

...

WILLIAMS JA:  The order will be Appeal No 9146 of 2002 is struck out with costs and the other matter (3122 of 2002) will remain on the Court list at this stage.
