Raja (administratrix of the estate of Mohammed Sabir Raja, deceased) v Van Hoogstraten and others

Order – Amendment. The second to the seventh defendants' application to amend an order requiring them to forward a transcript of a judgment to the Revenue and Customs Commissioners (HMRC), together with an explanation as to the tax treatment of the monies received on behalf of trusts of two properties (para 7), was dismissed. The Chancery Division ruled that the amendment sought, which was to replace the named defendants with the name of the first defendant, was not appropriate where para 7 could have been complied with in its original form and where it was clear that the first defendant had no intention of complying with it. The court also dismissed an application to set aside further orders which essentially required compliance with para 7.
