The pleadings in the case of the State Trading Corporation (STC) to the company Betamax, which lasted three days, ended today. The lawyers of Vikram Bhunjun's company pursued theirs today. In particular, they explained that the contract with STC was exempt from the procedures governed by the Public Procurement Act.

At the resumption of the proceedings before the Supreme Court this afternoon, Stuart Issaacs, Queen's Counsel, representative of the petroleum transportation company, made it clear that the charter agreement between STC and Betamax is an agreement in principle to provide a service, that is fuel transportation. For example, Stuart Issaacs is of the opinion that TCC's approach to the courts is fraud against the Supreme Court.

Senior Counsel Rishi Pursem made it clear that STC's motion to challenge the Supreme Court's decision was filed outside the 14-day deadline. According to him, the motion should be dismissed.

The judgment is reserved and will be rendered at a later date.
