Can A Receiver and Manager be sued by an Unsecured Creditor For Fraud?

Monorail Retail v Cho Choo Meng, Mohd Anwar bin Yahya and Pricewaterhouse coopers, Malaysia.
Skrine, representing the Defendants, succeeded at the High Court in striking out the suit against the Defendants based on the legal ground that an unsecured creditor has no “locus standi” to sue a receiver and manager. The case went on appeal to the Court of Appeal. On 18 April 2011, the Court of Appeal affirmed the earlier decision in favour of our clients. This decision has a far reaching effect in preventing the floodgates of suits against receivers and managers in general.
