Re Khan;

Bankruptcy – Petition. The Bankruptcy High Court considered the meaning of 'ordinarily resident' and ruled that it had jurisdiction to make a bankruptcy order against the respondent debtor, a member of the Pakistan Senate, notwithstanding that it accepted his evidence that he usually resided in Pakistan. The time he spent in the United Kingdom, where his children were schooled, where he owned properties and had business interests, evidenced a degree of permanence. It followed that he had a place of residence in England and Wales in the period mentioned in s 265 of the Insolvency Act 1986.
