Summary of Decision
5) (per Raus JCA; Hasan JCA concurring)
Since the first defendant was relying on the proviso of section 340(3) of the Code, that he was a bona fide purchaser for valuable consideration, the evidential burden fell on him. The evidential burden remained with the first defendant. There was no duty on the plaintiffs to prove that the first defendant was a party or privy to the fraud or forgery (see paragraph 45).
