High Court Confirms Appointment Of Joint Official Liquidators To Stobart Air
The High Court has confirmed the appointment of joint official liquidators to former Aer Lingus Regional operator Stobart Air, which ceased trading in June.
As reported by The Irish Times, in appointing Deloitte Ireland partners Ken Fennell and Mark Degnan, Ms Justice Miriam O'Regan told a representative of 38 Stobart employees that their concerns about non-payment of wages arrears and other entitlements will be best addressed through the liquidators.
O'Regan reportedly formally appointed Fennell and Degnan and ordered that the company directors must file statements of affairs within three weeks.
Stephen Brady, for the liquidators, reportedly said that there has been engagement with all stakeholders and it was proposed to make the employees redundant and have their statutory claims processed through the Department of Social Protection.
Council reportedly said that it is hoped that the arrears of wages issue can be "wrapped up in early course".
Stobart Air provided employment to 480 workers, 152 of which were directly employed.
