SELAYANG: The dispute over the judgment debtor’s suit involving two former members of the Elite group, Hana and Watie was concluded today when both agreed to settle the case amicably at the Sessions Court here.
The judgment debtor’s suit filed by Hana or real name Norhanasafiza Mat Adnan against her former bandmate has been going on for almost eight years.
Hana acted as such following the decision of the Selayang Sessions Court on 10 March 2015 in the case of the master suit which ordered Watie to pay damages amounting to RM707,351.83.
The damages were demanded by Hana for claiming that Watie or her real name was Norwati Sadali failed to pay the bank loan that used her name to buy a Toyota Wish car.
In today’s in-room proceedings, the consent judgment order was then recorded by Judge Nor Rajiah Mat Zin who was attended by lawyer Mohd. The thought of Abd. Rahman represented Hana while lawyer Aqila Zulaiqha Zulkifli, represented Watie.
However, Hana and Watie were not present in court at the proceedings.
Mohd. Fikri when met by reporters said that the judge recorded the consent judgment as agreed upon by both parties.
According to the lawyer, the agreed payment was as ordered by the court on 25 October 2017, but Watie as the judgment debtor delayed the payment several times possibly due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“I request that this case not be extended because Watie has already agreed to make the payment and my client (the judgment creditor) has agreed to accept the amount proposed by the judgment debtor.
“Hana also lost her job and maybe because of that, she was quite emotional. This matter was finally resolved amicably with agreed terms.
“I ask that this case not be prolonged because my client agreed to accept the amount proposed by Watie.
“Each one needs financial resources and Hana expects Watie to pay (the debt), but the payment is delayed. Alhamdulillah, we were able to resolve it well and the lawyers also discussed finding the best way,” he said.
Last week, the media reported that Hana refused to put up with Watie who had allegedly still not paid the RM2,500 monthly installment to him as ordered by the Sessions Court.
Hana said, five years have been given for Watie to settle the debt claim in installments as previously ordered.
In the judgment debtor’s suit, Hana also asked the court to issue an arrest warrant if Watie failed to appear in court to explain his failure to pay the debt.
In her statement of claim through the master suit, Hana said she took out a bank loan of RM150,000 to buy the vehicle in question in September 2005 for Watie because Watie was not eligible to take out a loan.
According to Hana, after owning the vehicle, Watie failed to comply with the stipulated conditions including not making installment payments since September 2010 to the bank which caused him (Hana) to be declared bankrupt on 1 April 2013. – MESSENGER
