The liquidation of REDISA (Court papers as filed in the application)

Minister Edna Molewa successfully applied for the liquidation of Redisa, which the Western Cape Division of the High Court provisionally granted with effect from the 1st June 2017, to safe guard the operations and assets associated with the REDISA Integrated Industry Waste Tyre Management Plan (IIWTMP). 

A rule nisi was issued that called upon Redisa and any other interested party to provide reasons before 25 July 2017 why Redisa should not be finally liquidated.

The Master of the High Court, Cape Town appointed a provisional liquidator on 2 June 2017 and later also appointed provisional co-liquidators. The provisional liquidators, as directed in the provisional liquidation order, took control of the assets and are conducting the business of Redisa as a going concern.

Redisa applied for the matter to be heard sooner and the application was fully argued on 6 and 7 July 2017 before Justice Henney. Judgment was reserved.

Attached hereto are the court papers as filed in this application.
