Recent amendment on Subordinate Court Act among all increase monetary limit of Magistrate courts from RM25, 000-00 to RM100, 000-00; Session Courts from RM250, 000-00 to RM1, 000, 000-00! I personally think it is a good amendment but the Bar seems not very happy with it, they think that a proper and more comprehensive study should be conducted first before the any amendment made, I could not differ on that. May be the government should consider the Bar's opinion, after all it's the lawyers who are dealing with the act every dayJ.
For those who don't understand what is monetary jurisdiction/limit is all about; it means (in simple) that now under the amendment the magistrate court may deal with cases or disputes or awarding damages up to RM100, 000-00 (compare to before only RM25, 000-00), and so for the session court which upgraded to RM1, 000, 000-00.
What do you think?
