Jerma Beach to Seek out-of-court Settlement with H.M. Enterprises

Jun 27, 2008, 4:37 AM

Jerma Beach Hotel, which was dragged to court by H.M. Enterprises, has breathed a sigh of relief when its counsel told Magistrate Mbackeh of the Kanifing Magistrates' Court that he had approached the representative of the plaintiff to settle the case out of court. H.M. Enterprises filed the suit to claim for D152, 350 being cost of electrical materials it had supplied or made available to Jerma Beach Hotel in Kololi.

Senior Magistrate Abdoulie Mbackeh asked the representative of H.M. Enterprises, Ebrima Faye, whether he had something to tell the court concerning what the counsel for the defendant had told the court. Mr. Faye then confirmed to the court that the counsel for the defendant had approached him to settle the case out of court.

Magistrate Mbackeh then adjourned the case to 14th July, 2008, for both parties to report back.
