papers of the company by creditors and contributories as the court
thinks just, and any books and papers in the possession of the

which would have accrued to the company if not dissolved the
Master shall give instructions for the realisation thereof and for the
distribution of the proceeds, less the cost of the realisation and
distribution to such persons as would have been entitled thereto in the
winding up; and the same shall apply to any moneys becoming so
available.

204. (1) The court may, after it has made a winding-up
order, summon before it any officer of the company or person known
or suspected to have in his possession any property of the company
or supposed to be indebted to the company, or any person whom the
court deems capable of giving information concerning the promotion,

be written interrogatories, and may reduce his answers to writing and
require him to sign them.

(3) The court may require him to produce any books and
papers in his custody or power relating to the company, but where he
claims any lien on books or papers produced by him, the production
shall be without prejudice to such lien, and the court shall have
jurisdiction in the winding up to determine all questions relating to
that lien.

(4) If any person so summoned, after being tendered a
reasonable sum for his expenses, fails to come before the court at the
time appointed without reasonable excuse, made known to the court
at the time of its sitting and allowed by it, the court may cause him to
be apprehended and brought before the court for examination.

205. (1) When an order has been made for winding up a
company by the court, and the Master has made a report under this
Act, showing that in his opinion a fraud has been committed by any
person in the promotion or formation of the company, or by a
director or officer of the company, in relation to the company or any
creditor thereof since its formation, the court may direct that any
person who has taken part in the promotion or formation of the

remove or conceal any property for the purpose of evading payment
of call or of avoiding examination respecting the affairs of the
company, may cause the contributory to be arrested, and his books
and papers and movable property to be seized, and him and them to
be safely kept until such time as the court may order.

207. Any powers by this Act conferred on the court shall

of the company, or the estate of any contributory or debtor, for the
recovery of any call or other sums.

not exceeding twelve months from the commencement of the
winding up, and may recover from the company any costs reasonably
incurred by them in furnishing such security:

Provided that the Master may dispense with such security if
the majority of the directors of the company furnish him with a
sworn statement supported by a certificate from the auditors of the
company that the company has no liabilities.

(2) A winding up in the case of which such security has
been furnished or dispensed with in accordance with this section is in

otherwise in the office of liquidator appointed by the company, the

by any contributory, or by the continuing liquidator or liquidators, if

wound up voluntarily and the whole or part of its business or
property is proposed to be transferred or sold to another company,
whether registered under this Act or not (in this section called the

section called the transferor company) may, with the sanction of a
special resolution of that company conferring either a general

section shall be binding on the members of the transferor company.

carrying the resolution into effect or to purchase his interest at a price
to be determined by agreement or by arbitration under the provisions
of any law in force in Lesotho concerning arbitration.

(4) If the liquidator elects to purchase the member’s
interest, the purchase price shall be paid before the company is
dissolved, and be raised by the liquidator in such manner as may be
determined by special resolution.

(5) A special resolution shall not be invalid for the
purposes of this section by reason that it is passed before or

exercise if the company were being wound up by the court.

(2) The court, if satisfied that the determination of the

liquidator or of any other person who appears to the court to be
interested, make an order deferring the date at which the dissolution

Provided further that, notwithstanding any dissolution as aforesaid, in
the even of any property thereafter becoming available the Master
shall give instructions for the realisation thereof and the distribution
of the proceeds, less the cost of realisation and distribution, to such
persons as would have been entitled thereto in the winding up; and
the same shall apply to any moneys becoming so available.

232. The voluntary winding up of a company shall not bar
the right of any creditor or contributory at any time before its

up.
