PAS Batu division lawsuit against four Amanah members solved

KUALA LUMPUR: The lawsuit filed by Batu PAS chief Azhar Yahya, PAS Batu division and a property owner in Batu district, Md Mansor Ali against four Parti Amanah Negara (Amanah) members was through a mediation process at the High Court here.

Judge Datuk Ahmad Zaidi Ibrahim today recorded the consent judgement in chambers after all the plaintiffs and defendants, Rosden Mohd Yassin, M. Sugaimi A. Rahaman, Ismail Yahaya and Jamhor Nawawi agreed to settle the suit.

In the consent judgement, both parties agreed that the third plaintiff (PAS Batu district) would pay RM32,500 to all the defendants within 14 days from today.

In addition, the Power of Attorney dated Aug 18, 2015 would be revoked after PAS Batu division paid the money and all the defendants would be required to sign the Revocation of Power of Attorney letter in seven days after receiving it.

According to the judgement, vacant possession of the property must be handed over to PAS Batu division immediately after the payment was made.

In the suit filed on July 20, 2017, the three plaintiffs applied for a court order to have the defendants surrender the property to them, namely two shop lots, as well as all expenses and financial transactions involving the property.

The plaintiffs claimed that Azhar and PAS Batu division had bought two shop lots in Batu near here in 2001, at a price of RM250,000 and the ownership of the property was transferred and registered in the name of the first plaintiff (Md Mansor) as trustee.

They claimed that in order to pay for the purchase of the property, Md Mansor had applied for a loan from Bank Islam Malaysia Berhad (BIMB), while the second and third plaintiffs paid the monthly instalments to the bank.

The plaintiffs said in November 2014, PAS Batu division received a letter from BIMB about outstanding monthly payments on the property and to pay off the debt, the party asked all the defendants to settle the mortgage. — Bernama
