TAN TEK SENG v. SURUHANJAYA PERKHIDMATAN PENDIDIKAN & ANOR

Gopal Sri Ram
In his statement of claim, the appellant has also prayed for "further or other relief as this Honorable Court thinks fit". In Lim Eng Kay V. Jaafar Bin Mohamed Said [1982] 1 LNS 12, a prayer in a statement of claim read "Any other relief which this Honourable Court deem fit to grant". Salleh Abas FJ (as he then was) said that this prayer "must not be treated as a mere ornament to pleadings devoid of any meaning".

I am of the view that the same may be said of the like prayer in the present case.
