TWO groups of shareholders of cash-strapped CL Financial suffered another defeat against the State after a High Court judge yesterday refused to grant them permission to be heard in the Government’s winding-up petition.
The ruling was handed down by Justice Kevin Ramcharan at the Hall of Justice in Port of Spain on what was supposed to be day one of the hearing of the actual petition.
