 6 MLJ 270
ORIGINATING SUMMONS NO S1-24-271 OF 1996
HIGH COURT (KUALA LUMPUR)
DECIDED-DATE-1: 24 OCTOBER 1997
MOHD NOOR AHMAD J
Facts of the case
The plaintiffs applied for possession of a piece of land (‘the land’). They later discovered several houses built on the land and occuppied by the defendants. They claimed that the occupation was without the consent of the plaintiffs and their predecessor-in-title. On the other hand, the defendants asserted that they had occupied the land and constructed the houses since the 1940s with the consent of the then Selangor State Government. They were also rendered facilities by several government agencies and had paid assessments. Thus, the defendants contended, their occupation arises from acquiescence and implied consent, and therefore, they are holders of a licence coupled with an equity. At the trial, the defendants’ counsel objected to the service of the originating summons and the supporting affidavit for non-compliance with the requirements of O 89 r 4(2) of the Rules of the High Court 1980 (‘the RHC’).
