Elegant Advisory vs Umno: Appeal filed

A company has filed an appeal against the decision of the High Court to strike out its RM218 million suit against Umno for supplying election paraphernalia during the 2004 poll.

Elegant Advisory Sdn Bhd filed the notice of appeal at the High Court registrar's office here Friday through Messrs Termizi & Co.

Lawyer Mohd Nazruddin Abdullah, when contacted, said that he was preparing the grounds for appeal and no date had been set by the Court of Appeal to hear the case.

On Sept 10, judicial commissioner Anantham Kasinater, who allowed Umno's application to strike out the company's suit, decided that the suit against Umno was unfounded and did not comply with the Contracts Act 1950.

He said that in his submission, the company's lawyer admitted that there was no written contract, and neither could he explain the gist of the contract verbally.

Elegant Advisory, which filed the civil suit on June 23, 2008 and named the Umno treasurer, Abdul Azim Mohd Zabidi and Umno, as the defendants, said that the company was appointed to supply election paraphernalia and printed materials as well as provide transportation to Umno for the 11th general election.

The company claimed that it had submitted an invoice of RM218,013,475 but Umno failed to settle the payment.
