Roshan v Bharj [2017] EWHC 176 (CH)


13/2/17  Mr Simon Monty QC sitting as a Deputy High Court Judge

The claimant issued proceedings in August 2016 seeking an order that judgment delivered by Recorder Monty QC in February 2015 in the County Court sitting at Central London determining the beneficial interests in a property used a Sikh Temple be set aside on the grounds that the evidence given at trial by both parties had been fraudulent. The claimant had not been a party to the earlier proceedings, but claimed to represent the members of the Temple who, it was alleged, were the true owners under a charitable purposes trust.

Stephen Boyd appeared for the defendants who successfully applied for reverse summary judgment and/or an order that the claim be struck out as an abuse of process.
