Home drama lands in Supreme Court

LEGAL representatives for Jozsef Pall and Rosalie Papp and Toormina businessman Theo Sourlos will face off in the Supreme Court tomorrow to resolve a drama which has seen the Boambee pensioner couple spend weeks sleeping in their car and spending their days in a furniture storage unit.

Mr Sourlos’ solicitor said his client was now paying for accommodation for the couple in a Coffs Harbour motel while the case was heard.

Ms Papp said yesterday they were more comfortable “but I just want to go home”.

Ms Papp and Mr Pall shot to national prominence on May 11 when they barricaded the gates of their home at 142 Ayrshire Park Drive to keep out the tenant, Theo Sourlos, who said he was in the process of buying the house.

The couple said Mr Sourlos had exchanged contracts in May 2009; the agreed six-month settlement period had long expired without Mr Sourlos paying the full sum agreed for the sale of the house and they wanted their home back.

The case arrived at the Supreme Court on Monday.
