Galantis v Alexiou and another (Bahamas)

Company – Oppression. Section 272 of the Bahamian Companies Act 1992 did not have the effect of continuing any liability of the appellant directors under s 280 because they had not been under any such liability when their company had been removed from the register. Accordingly, the Privy Council allowed the appellants' appeal against the Court of Appeal's decision that the appellants' failure to pay a judgment order had amounted to a liability for unfair and oppressive conduct that had continued after the removal of their company from the register of companies.
