The North Gauteng High Court is expected to deliver judgment in the Gupta-linked Optimum coal case.
The company’s CEO wants the court to overturn the appointment of business rescue practitioners.
The practitioners were appointed to run the Gupta-linked Hendrina coal mine in Mpumalanga.
The mine has been the scene of several worker strikes this year, stemming from cash-flow problems.
It’s supply of coal to Eskom’s nearby power plant dried up in March, forcing the power utility to source coal elsewhere.[Source: eNCA]
