*Rashid v Nasrullah (acting as executor of the estate of the late Mohammed Rashid)

Limitation of action – Registered land. The appellant's appeal in a dispute as to the ownership of property obtained by fraud succeeded. The appellant's father had obtained the property by fraud, and the original owner of the property (MR2) had failed to challenge the fraudulent transfer within the required time limit. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, held that, among other things, what made the appellant's claim good was not his father's fraud in procuring his registration as proprietor or his complicity in that fraud; but the fact of possession of the property for the requisite 12 years without the consent of MR2.
