The developers of the River Club have been served with papers for allegedly being in contempt of court.

This is after the Liesbeek Leisure Properties Trust resumed construction last month, despite being prevented to do so by the High Court.

It’s understood that the owners are doing some work on the partially constructed building, to prevent damages.

In March, Deputy Judge President Patricia Goliath granted an interdict to groups opposing the development.

The Trust has approached the Supreme Court of Appeal challenging the interdict.

The Goringhaicona Khoi Khoin Indigenous Traditional Council’s Tauriq Jenkins says the contempt of court application will be heard tomorrow.
