Prominent businesswoman Asha “Mrs Ram” Mirchandani is prepared to put up a legal battle that could go as far as the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) over how Government has proceeded with the compulsorily acquisition of her property.
In an exclusive interview two weeks after the Ministry of Housing locked and bolted her Liquidation Centre on Bay Street, The City, with over $5 million worth of stock inside, a hurt Mirchandani revealed that an appeal against that decision would be heard in the High Court on Tuesday.
“We have appealed because there has to be justice in this country,” she said, adding that “if required”, she would go to the CCJ “I am so hurt; the family is so hurt right now. I half-living, half-dead, that I wasted my life in a country which I thought was my home. You know how it feels?” she asked. Government had given the Mirchandanis a final deadline of November 4 to vacate the premises. (MB)
