Situation. Court case in Senegal under French Law. I know that Local laws may skewed or bribary may enter into it. We were proceeding against Danielle for Fraud and Compensation, However she died just before the case was due. She was going to work alongside Joanna in the running of the project. Danielle wanted to go into the project with Jo on a 50/50 basis. Danielle would contribute her land and Joanna would buy the goods. She said that she would pay for 50% of the goods, and Joanna would buy 50% of the land. It was originally accepted by Danielle that there was no time schedule for when the land would be paid for, as Joanna had no money, and also accepted that Joanna’s land in Ngarigne would be accepted in part payment. Joanna did to this end put 7 plots of land in the name of Danielle and two in the name of her husband Balla. It is documented that there is a GIE in existance with three members . Danielle is Director of the GIE, Jo is the Accountant, and Balla is the third without position, as there must be a third member. The GIE is still in existence although not operating. Danielle although giving verbal and written admission that she no longer wants to participate in the GIE or the project, did not officially and legally leave the GIE and so is still a member. Danielle has since died (last week) and her daughter has inherited this asset/liability. Questions. 1. If her daughter wants to buy us out what is due/ a) no payment for the land as Jo has not paid Danielle for it yet, and the plots of land in . . . Ngarigne have been transferred back into Joanna’s name. b) Payment in full for the costs of the products at purchase plus installation costs or c) Payment for products in todays used condition. plus d) Payment for any Betterment of the land. Pools, Bar, Toys. House 2. Timeframe. Would she be liable a) Only up to the date at which she participated in the decision as to what was to be .. constructed and to the way in which the project was to be run and these joint decisions . were put into effect, or b) for the total costs to date, even though Danielle did not agree to them, as Jo was bound to run the business in the best way possible as the GIE was still in effect. c) Especially would this include any alterations undertaken necessitated by compliance with .. the local legislation, in order to be allowed to operate. d) (Would this include wages. And Jo.s wages) Or, is there a further commitment 3). Asset/ Debt Inheritance. I believe she inherits the Asset with its liabilities, and therefore she inherits half the debts, and if she wants to buy Jo out she needs to pay for all the Debts, or Loans. Is that right? Liable for all the projects debts over and above the value of the land., i.e. what the project owes to Mrs. Landau re construction, (probably excluding the house, although could the house be considered in lieu of wages or salary for Jo and means of living, since she was receiving no income from the project nor wages, she therefore needed to be housed. So could the housing be taken in part payment in lieu of wages? Is she liable for half the losses since the company has been running at a loss which has been supplemented by me as a loan to the company? Is she responsible to pay Jo arrears wages?
I need the answer so am inclined to wait. Can you please explain the difficulty of why no-one is available to answer. And Will you kindly refund the extra charge for speedy answer?
