Affaire La Butte : Nooreyajam Rujubali perd en Cour

Le verdict est tombé… La Juge Rita Teelock a rendu son jugement dans le cas de Nooreyajam Rujubali en annulant l’ordre intérimaire interdisant la démolition de la maison, affirmant qu’il n’y a pas de raison pour transformer cet ordre intérimaire en ordre interlocutoire.

La Juge a fait ressortir quand plusieurs points ont été omis dans l’« initial affidavit » :-

(a) The applicants are in occupation of two lots, 428/2 and 428/3.

(b) Applicant no.1 is one of four heirs of late Mrs Mansoor Rujubali who was a lessee of respondent no. 2. He is in occupation of lot 428/3 together with another heir (his sister), who is not a party to the present application, and applicants nos. 2 and 3.

(c) Applicants no.2 and no. 3 are not heirs of late Mrs Mansoor Rujubali but are the children of applicant no. 1.

(d) There has been correspondence between respondent no. 2 ans the heirs calling upon the latter to formally enter into a lease and provide required documents as far back as at least as from 2010.

(e) The heirs were sent a letter dated 24th April 2014 ‘retrieving’ the land leased by respondent no. 2 for the purpose of the Light Railway Transit Project by the State.

(f) A letter dated 23 March 2017 was sent by the respondent no.2 to the heirs giving 3 months notice to them to vacate and offering compensation.

(g) A Notice to Squatter under section 22 of the State Lands Act was served on 17 August 2017 by respondent no. 2.

Plus loin on peut également lire dans le jugement que Nooreyajam Rujubali n’a pu prouvé qu’il est propriétaire du terrain.

Cependant, la juge a ordonné aux autorités de ne pas procéder à la démolition de la maison de Nooreyajam Rujubali jusqu’au samedi 23 septembre. Ce qui fait que l’habitant de La Butte a ainsi un sursis d’environ dix jours.
