10 Guaranteed Payment

  • How do you get “assurance” that when the court make an order, you can get  paid?  At times when the debtors do not comply with the court order what can you do?  
    • Therefore in this case  we inserted  a penal indorsement on an order purely for costs, so that we may compel the party paying costs to pay, if in  default, to hold the person in contempt of court, which could  mean spending time in prison.  
    • See the Grounds of Judgment: Yap Kit Wah & 30 Ors v Yap Kim Choon @ Yap Siw Sin & 2 Ors  dated October 13, 2014
