Mond v Booth

Bankruptcy – Sequestration. Sheriff Court: Granting a petition in which the trustee under a trust deed originally granted by the respondent in 2006 sought an award of sequestration of the respondent's estate, the court held that the legislation provided a route for creditor trustees, on the basis of a simple averment that an award of sequestration would be in the best interest of the creditors, to seek and obtain as of right, such an award without the requirement to prove the truth of that averment: the legislation was Human Rights Convention compliant and there was therefore no basis on which it could or should be read down.
