According to our sources, Filmhouse had approached Moet&Chandon in 2018 with a sponsorship proposal for a film industry event which eventually took place on 26th of January, 2019. While planning for the second edition of the event it was then discovered that Moet&Chandon had indeed gone ahead of Filmhouse to plan the event.
The Court Bailiffs and members of the Police Force will be available and on standby to enforce the orders of the court and curtail any attempts at flouting the orders of the Court under any guise whatsoever. .
The matter has subsequently been adjourned to the 11th of February, 2020 for hearing.[SWIPE]
