Menzies files yet another High Court application

Niël Terblanché

Menzies Aviation Namibia has on Tuesday filed a notice of motion with the Namibian High Court in which it states its intention to bring yet another application to nullify its eviction from the Hosea Kutako International Airport.

The British-owned company is seeking an order where the Namibia Airports Company is called upon to show cause why previous High Court decisions should not be reviewed and set aside; that the 30-day notice period dated 9 August 2023 be set aside; that any decision made by the NAC’s board of directors or any person on behalf of the first respondent to take a decision to give notice to vacate the Hosea Kutako International within 30 days be set aside and to grant the applicant further and alternative relief.

Menzie also gave notice that they intend to apply to the court for the costs of the matter to be paid by the respondents.

In this regard Menzies will seek to interdict the Namibia Airport Company and Paragon Investment Holdings JV Ethiopian Airlines from evicting the applicant from the Hosea Kutako International Airport without a valid and lawful warrant of eviction and court order having been obtained and issued after 8 August 2023 or prior to the expiry of a 12-month written notice given by the airports company to the applicant after 8 August 2023; or prior to the three month period running out as envisaged in section 5(1) (e) of The Airports Companies Act, 1998.

In the notice of motion, Menzies reserves the right to expedite the relief sought if circumstances so require.

This is the second High Court motion brought by the British-owned company in less than a week. The first application was launched last Saturday after Menzies was evicted from the premises of the Namibia Airports Company.
