This is an appeal against the judgment and orders of
the High Court.
Court considered whether the suit was time barred.
Court ruled that the action accrued in 1983 when the estate of
the deceased proprietor lost the suit property is not tenable. The
action was founded on fraud which was discovered in 1994 by
the respondent who pleaded that he could not bring the action
because he could not obtain Letters of Administration because
he was a minor. He obtained the Letters of Administration on
8 th October 2001 and that is when he could legally sue on
behalf of the estate of the deceased and therefore the suit which
was filed on 8 th July 2003 was well within time
Court accordingly dismissed the appeal.
