One of the disputes between Omar Belmamoun and his American business partner has just been tried. The two entrepreneurs are associated equally in the Brookstone Partners Morocco (BPM) investment fund.
The Casablanca Commercial Court of Appeal “suspended the effects” of the ordinary general meeting of May 20, 2019. During this disputed meeting, it was decided to dismiss the CEO, Omar Belmamoun, from his duties and to appoint a court administrator. These two resolutions were ultimately found to be “illegal”. The meeting which was led by Michael Toporek was therefore canceled by the Casablanca Commercial Court. “Because it was maintained despite my decision to adjourn the session,” said Brookstone Partners Morocco CEO Omar Belmamoun. This action was won in urgent proceedings (emergency procedure) by our contact. Justice will then have to settle this dispute on the merits.
In addition, this case gave rise to another criminal action. The CEO attacked his partner and his advisor, Laila Slassi, for an alleged forgery and use of forgery in the minutes of the meeting. After several postponements, this trial resumes on January 20 at the Casablanca criminal court. Toporek has not yet appeared at the bar. “He has not been notified,” said a source close to him.
