Firm applies for default judgment against Ras Adiba
By M MAGESWARI
KUALA LUMPUR: A Petronas supplier company has applied for a default judgement against television presenter Ras Adiba Mohd Radzi over a RM3.2mil breach of sale of shares agreement suit.
The High Court has granted an extension of time to Ras Adiba to file her statement of defence.
Ras Adiba's lawyer Datuk Mohd Haaziq Pillay said senior assistant registrar Aazina Mujahid Lee allowed extension of time upon hearing submissions by parties.
In his suit filed on May 3, 2012, plaintiff Nik Fauzi Nik Hussein claimed that he owned 65% shares or 650,000 units of shares in Inki Plas Holding Sdn Bhd.
He said he had agreed to sell the 650,000 units valued at RM1 per unit and Ras Adiba, 44, had agreed to purchase the shares.
The 53-year-old director said there was a meeting held on June 7, 2006 to discuss the assets and liabilities of the company which needed to be taken into account when Ras Adiba bought and signed any agreement.
He said both of them had entered a sale of shares agreement on July 24.
Nik Fauzi alleged that after the contract was signed and stamped on Aug 2, Ras Adiba failed, refused or neglected to fulfil the terms in the contract.
He claimed that Ras Adiba had neglected and failed to assist in a bid to strengthen Inki Plas Holding and her failure to do so had resulted the company facing financial difficulties and burdening him in particular.
Nik Fauzi said this had caused him to suffer losses after he had to bear and pay the liabilities of Inki Plas Holding, whereas initially Ras Adiba had agreed to help with the strengthening and structuring of the company if it was under her organisation.
He is seeking a RM3,288,172 in damages or part of it or any part of the amount, any relief which is deemed fit and costs.
