Former MCA secretary-general Tan Sri Kam Woon Wah has applied to strike out a lawsuit by his son to determine his mental health.
L-R Woon Wah, Hannah, Tai Yeow.
Woon Wah, in his application said the originating summons brought by Datuk Seri Andrew Kam Tai Yeow does not disclose a reasonable case of action against him.
“The summons is scandalous, oppressive, frivolous and vexatious, and an abuse of the process of court.
“The defendant (Woon Wah) is and was at all material time fully and entirely capable of managing himself and his affairs and those of the companies of which he is in charge.
“The plaintiff (Tai Yeow) having been disowned by the defendant has no rights to file this originating summons,” it was stated in the striking out application.
On Dec 20, Tai Yeow filed legal proceedings to determine his father’s mental health which had allegedly been in decline recently.
Tai Yeow is also seeking information on all properties owned by his 92-year-old father.
It was reported that Woon Wah had previously taken out an advertisement in a local English newspaper to announce that he had disowned Tai Yeow and the latter’s daughter, Hannah Kam Zhen Yi, thus cutting them out from his inheritance. – NST
