The High Court has dismissed a bid by one of David Henderson’s companies now directed by his wife to stop liquidation proceedings.
Wellington accountant Robert Walker, the liquidator of several companies in the Henderson group, has started court action to liquidate Castlereagh Properties Ltd, of which Henderson was a shareholder until June 27, 2010.
The shares are now held by FTG Trustee Services Ltd, a company directed by Henderson’s wife Kristina Louise Buxton, but with the shareholding in Henderson’s name.
Henderson was bankrupted on November 29, 2010 and remains a bankrupt. Walker has also issued bankruptcy proceedings against Buxton.
