The Kuantan High Court today ordered the Menteri Besar of Pahang by way of a Writ of Mandamus to pay Seruan Gemilang Sdn Bhd the sum of 37 Million (which if interest on it be calculated had amounted to almost 63 million). Seruan Gemilang had obtained the Judgment against the State Government on a logging land dispute.
Malaysian Insider had given a fair reporting of the matter.
I have earlier written Pahang Suing Seruan Gemilang to set aside the Judgment and the matter is still pending. Among the pleadings therein, the State have evidence of fraud, forgery and perjury on the part of Seruan Gemilang in getting the Court to grant judgment in their favour.
The matter will be heard this 24th April 2009 in the High Court at Kuantan. An application for stay of execution of the mandamus granted today will also be filed tomorrow and hopefully can be heard together on the same date.
Will update again on the 24th April 2009, InsyaAllah.
Update : - The new Civil Action filed to set aside the judgement is Kuantan High Court Civil Action 21-11-2008 filed on the 22nd December 2008.
