KUALA LUMPUR: The High Court yesterday struck out Tan Chong group co-founder Datuk Tan Kim Hor children's suit to reinstate them as directors of six subsidiaries of Warisan TC Holdings Bhd.
Justice Zulkefli Ahmad Makinuddin however allowed an application by Datuk Tan Heng Chew, the chairman of Warisan TC and the seven other companies who were named as defendants, to strike out the suit filed by Tan Boon Pun and Tan Bee Huat.
Justice Zulkefli, who delivered the decision in his chambers, had struck out the suit with costs.
The court held that there was no cause of action and that there were no serious issues to be tried.
On Sept 11, 2002, Kim Hor's eldest son Boon Pun and his daughter Bee Huat had filed a suit at the High Court claiming that their removal by way of non-re-election at a general meeting in August was unfair and actuated with malice.
In the suit, Boon Pun who is the former chairman of Tung Pao Sdn Bhd, as subsidiary within the Tan Chong Group of public companies and Bee Huat, named Warisan TC Holdings Bhd and several other subsidiaries within it such as Tan Chong Apparels Sdn Bhd, Mayflower Acme Tours Sdn Bhd and TC Beauty Services Sdn Bhd, and his cousin Datuk Tan Heng Chew, the chairman of Warisan TC, as defendants.
