Rules of the Court of Appeal 1994 Malaysia
The Rules of the Court of Appeal 1994 Malaysia are a set of subsidiary legislation that govern the procedure and practice of civil and criminal appeals in the Court of Appeal, which is the second highest court in the Malaysian judicial hierarchy. The Rules were made by the Chief Justice, President of the Court of Appeal and Chief Judge (Malaya) under section 17 of the Courts of Judicature Act 1964 and came into force on 1 January 1995.
The Rules consist of nine chapters and 55 rules, covering various aspects of appeals such as notice and memorandum of appeal, entry of appeal, application for leave to appeal, service and address for service, evidence and affidavits, motions and other applications, costs, change of parties by death or otherwise, and paupers. The Rules also provide for the forms to be used for different types of appeals and applications.
The Rules are intended to facilitate the expeditious disposal of appeals and to ensure that justice is done to the parties. The Rules also give the Court of Appeal wide powers to amend, admit further evidence, draw inferences of fact, review its own orders, and make any order as it thinks fit.
