Zonda Tec Ghana boss fined GHS24k for contempt

Chief Executive of Zonda Tec Ghana Limited and Sinotruk, Mrs. Yang Yang, a prominent Chinese transport and logistics company, has been fined GHS24,000 by the Tema High Court for contempt.

Justice Patricia Quansah, presiding over the court, also imposed a GHS12,000 fine on the legal representative of Zonda Sinotruck, both facing the threat of imprisonment in case of default.

The contempt charges were brought forward by Narh Global Services, accusing Mrs. Yang Yang and Zonda Sinotruck of gross disobedience and disregard for a pending breach of contract lawsuit.

The incident leading to the contempt conviction took place on August 1, 2023, when Zonda Sinotruck allegedly attacked Narh Global’s mine in the Ashanti region, despite ongoing legal proceedings.

During the attack, workers were reportedly assaulted, the mine manager handcuffed to a stationary vehicle, and essential supplies, including diesel, were seized.

The court found Mrs. Yang Yang and the legal representative guilty of contempt in its recent ruling.

Archie Martin Danso Jnr, the lawyer representing Narh Global Services, expressed satisfaction with the court’s decision, highlighting the effectiveness of the legal system and the judge’s courage in holding Mrs. Yang Yang accountable.

While acknowledging concerns about other matters, he commended the court for its commitment to justice.

In the wider legal dispute, Narh Global Services has entered an appearance in the breach of contract suit initiated by Zonda Sinotruck.

The court has dismissed a motion to strike out the statement of claim and dismiss the suit.

Furthermore, Narh Global Services has filed a motion for an extension of time to submit a statement of defense, and the case is currently pending before the court.
