Werksmans attorneys relieved post office battle is over
The law firm also confirmed that the Post Office's bank accounts had been frozen.
JOHANNESBURG - Werksmans attorneys on Friday said it was relieved that after a nearly 10-year legal battle with the Post Office, its client Nasasa cellular may be reimbursed the millions of rands owed to the company.
Nasasa had been trying to recover R50 million, plus interest, for the past eight years from the embattled postal service provider.
On Friday a court ruled in favour of the company.
The law firm has also confirmed that the Post Office's bank accounts had been frozen until the judgment is upheld.
Attorney Bernard Hotz said the assets of the Post Office could be attached to recover the cash.
"What is furthermore of concern in open court today, the judge put it to the Post Office's council that is the Post Office in the position to pay the R50 million by 4pm today? And the answer, was no."
