Olivine Industries and Africa Sun Oil Refineries (ASOR) have taken Jaggers Wholesalers to court for non-payment of goods.
Jaggers owes ASOR R940 591, 80 and Olivine Industries $18 763 74.
The two companies are demanding payment for goods that they supplied to Jaggers Wholesalers and have both applied for default judgments on the payments.
“Plaintiff’s claim is against defendant in the sum of R940 591, 80 in respect of goods sold and delivered by the plaintiff to the defendant at the latter’s special instance and request during the period September 2009 to March 2010,” read papers by ASOR.
The oil company said Jaggers had made an undertaking to pay part of the debt by May 24 but as at September 6, no payment had been made.
Olivine Industries also applied for a default judgment against Jaggers for the same reason.
According to the chamber application for default judgment, Olivine says it was time for the court to award the default judgment because Jaggers had failed to pay.
“The plaintiff’s (Olivine’s) claim as against defendant (Jaggers) is for payment of the sum $18 763, 74 for goods sold and supplied by plaintiff at defendant’s specific instance and request between February 15, 2010 and March 17, 2010 which sum despite demand, defendant has failed, refused and/or neglected to pay,” the papers state.
“In addition plaintiff claims interest thereon at 5% per annum in terms of the prescribed rate of interest notice 2009, Statutory 1nstrument 164 of 2009 with effect from May 18 to date of payment and costs of suit on the scale as between attorney and client,” Olivine state in their declaration.
