Legal Procedures Working On Qantas NZ Case

Last month the Employers & Manufacturers Association strenuously opposed a challenge to the age-old principle of limited liability while stating if the directors and officers of Qantas are found to have failed to meet their statutory obligations then they must be held accountable.

"Many creditors are now waiting to hear if the principals of Qantas New Zealand are found to have been negligent in any way," said Alasdair Thompson, EMA's chief executive.

"They are looking for answers to questions like 'did its directors continue trading while knowing the company was insolvent?' and 'did they fail to meet the deadline to file their annual report?' as The Independent (20/6/01) suggests was the case.

"Regardless of the court findings on July 25th, it is gratifying that the proper legal processes are being pursued. The reputation of business requires this and expects nothing less."
