KUALA LUMPUR: Actress Wan Nor Azlin Wan Mohd Husain (pix) failed to strike out a claim by her father over vacant possession of a terrace house in Taman Sri Keramat.
High Court judge Justice Rosilah Yop dismissed the 45-year-old actress' application after ruling that the civil court has jurisdiction to hear the matter.
She ordered Wan Nor Azlin to pay RM2,000 in costs to her father and set June 17 for case management.
In the lawsuit, the father, Wan Mohd Husain Wan Ibrahim, 76, said he had lived in the house with his wife until she passed away in 2008, after which he had invited his daughter to stay with him.
He said Wan Nor Azlin never paid the bills or monthly rental during her stay with him.
He claimed he had informed Wan Nor Azlin in mid-2011 that he wished to sell the house and that she had to vacate the house for easier transaction of the property.
Wan Nor Azlin failed to move out and claimed she had an interest in the house as she had installed a kitchen cabinet and wardrobe.
Wan Mohd Husian said his daughter had destroyed adverstisement on the sale of the house and disturbed potential buyers who came to view the house, in a bid to halt any transaction.
Apart from that, he said Wan Nor Azlin had also obtained a private caveat over the house on Oct 12, 2011.
It was reported that the actress had been targeted by loan sharks after her husband allegedly failed to repay a loan.
Wan Nor Azlin, who won the Seri Angkasa Award for best drama actress for her role in Takbir Untuk Abdah in 2001, has starred in more than 200 drama and theatre productions.
