KOTA KINABALU: The Court of Appeal here allowed with costs yesterday the appeal of two foreign casinos to recover RM7.1mil in gambling debts owed by former Sabah Chief Minister Datuk Seri Osu Sukam. 

The three-man bench comprising Justices Datuk James Foong, Datuk Abd Hamid Embong and Datuk Mohamad Raus Sharrif held that the High Court judge was wrong to conclude that registering the English High Court judgement pursuant to Section 5 (1) (a) (v) of the Reciprocal Enforcement of the Judgement Act 1958 was against public policy in Malaysia.
