THE High Court has given a couple whose company ran the 'Coffee Society' cafes in Dublin three more weeks to come up with a "financial statement" of affairs in relation to the liquidation of their company.
Huibrecht and Sally Ann Luykx, two of the four directors of the liquidated Windsor Corporate Catering Ltd company, were to have delivered a statement by October 1 to the liquidator to avoid facing committal to prison but the court heard that because of a mix-up they had not done so.
Yesterday, Ms Justice Mary Finlay Geoghegan gave them until November 4 to fully comply with the court requirement that they deliver up statements along with verifying affidavits.
Windsor, whose cafes included Coffee Society outlets in Ranelagh and Harcourt Street, was wound up by the High Court last April. Two other directors were Portugal-based Carlos Miguel De Almedia and Eduardo Miguel Miranda Reis and statements of affairs are also being sought from them.
James Treacy, for PJ Lynch, the official liquidator, told the judge yesterday that only a statement, but no affidavit, had been received from Mrs Luykx.
The judge said she was prepared to adjourn the liquidator's application for attachment and committal of the couple to prison over the alleged failure to provide statements for another three weeks, providing the statements and affidavits were filed by this Friday.
