Following the suit instituted by its aggrieved former employees, Visionscape has filed a statement of defence, denying all allegations of unlawful termination of employment without payment of entitlements.
The company also prayed the court to dismiss the suit, which it claimed was “entirely unmeritorious, vexatious and frivolous without any basis or foundation whatsoever.”
Visionscape’s legal representative, Azuka Offiah, disclosed that the organisation had filed a counter-claim for defamation made by the plaintiffs during the course of protests and public interviews.
He said they had made numerous untrue, defamatory as derogatory and totally unnecessary statements.
These, the counsel held, were calculated to disparage the company in the estimation of right-thinking members of the society.
