Johannesburg -

The African National Congress Youth League is expected to fight a liquidation order in the Johannesburg High Court on Wednesday.

The ANCYL is expected to argue why an order for its provisional liquidation should not be made final.

A hotel brought a fresh court application against the beleaguered ANCYL during the last court proceedings in January.

The hotel, trading as Palanquin Hospitality Management and based in Bloemfontein, claimed R1.5-million from the League.

The original liquidation order against the League was applied for by the Bloemfontein events company Z2 Presentations, which had originally been tasked with running the ANCYL's 2008 national conference in the Free State.

The conference left the company R15m out of pocket after the League did not pay its bill.

Palanquin, which is in liquidation, provided accommodation for the conference delegates. - Sapa
