PUTRAJAYA: The Court of Appeal has dismissed an appeal by Warisan TC chairman Datuk Tan Heng Chew to disqualify law firm Shearn Delamore & Co from acting for Tan Chong group co-founder Datuk Tan Kim Hor in a winding up petition. 

The decision was made unanimously by Justices Abdul Aziz Mohammad, Hashim Mohd Yusoff and Arifin Jaka yesterday. 

On March 29, The High Court dismissed an application by Heng Chew and eight others named as defendants, to disqualify Shearn Delamore from acting for Kim Hor and nine others.  

In a related matter, the three-man bench unanimously allowed Heng Chew’s appeal to prevent Kim Hor to reamend his statement of claim of the first winding up petition by adding three new events. 

On May 18, the High Court allowed Kim Hor’s application to reamend his statement of claim. 

Kim Hor’s faction holds 45% of the shares in Tan Chong Consolidated while Heng Chew’s side owns the rest. 

Tan Chong Consolidated holds 46% of the shares in Tan Chong Motor Holdings Bhd, 42% in APM Automotive Holdings Bhd and 42% in Warisan TC Holdings Bhd.
