Question posted in the General Law category relating to Gauteng
Question value: R 0.00
I had purchased a vehicle a 2015 and started the liquidation process in 2017 which was finalised in 2019. I had given the vehicle to a guy that was supposed to help me pay for it due to the fact that I could not sell it. I can no longer get a hold of the guy and I dont know where the vehicle is.
Judgment and a warrant of delivery of goods were issued in May last year. I am now being threatened with contempt of court and an arrest warrant if I don't return the vehicle. Please advise how do I proceed in this matter. I had also given the sheriff a few years ago the documents to try and find this vehicle but to no avail.
Answer to the Question
I see that you haven't made a payment for the question, but I'm going to assist you a little. If you want to ask a follow-up question, please make the required payment.
You can't be held in contempt of court unless you are WILLFULLY disobeying a court order. IF you don't know where the vehicle is, depose to an affidavit that sets out why you don't know, and give the affidavit to the court and the attorneys and the liquidator.
That should then be the end of the threats.
Please remember this is a dialog if you have follow-up questions please make the required payment, then use the REPLY button and ask your further question. I would like to continue assisting you, but I need to concentrate on people who make payments for their questions.
