A GOVERNMENT body plans to appeal against a court’s decision to waive a debt of more than BD20,000, which is allegedly owed by a private school.
The court verdict was based on illegible documents submitted by a lawyer representing the Jaffari Waqf (Endowment) Directorate, which overseas Shi’ite places of worship and public property.
However, an appeal hearing has been scheduled for June 10 in an attempt to recoup BD24,700 from the school in Bani Jamra, which is already facing eviction.
“We have already won a verdict to have the school evicted from its premises and will enforce an Execution Court order soon,” said the directorate in a statement.
“There is another dispute involving an empty plot used for car parking and we are owed BD24,700.
“The appeal is set for June 10 following a mistake by one of our lawyers, who presented unclear photocopies as evidence of the lease agreement.”
