[Civil Appeal No: 02(f)-120-10-2017 (W)]

[2020] 1 MLRA 481

JUDGMENT

[1] The appellant instituted a claim against the respondent in the High Court at Kuala Lumpur, for some payment pursuant to an agreement entered between them, known as an Introducer Agreement. The claim was dismissed by the High Court, as the Introducer Agreement was found to be an illegal contract pursuant to s 24 of the Contracts Act 1950, applying the principle of law as enunciated by this court in Merong Mahawangsa Sdn Bhd & Anor v. Dato' Shazryl Eskay Abdullah [2015] 5 MLRA 377; [2015] 5 MLJ 619; [2015] 8 CLJ 212. The appeal of the appellant at the Court of Appeal was also dismissed for the same reason.

[2] Leave was obtained from this court to determine the question of law as to whether the principle of law on public policy in Merong Mahawangsa equally applies to an agreement made between two private parties. We have heard the appeal and had reserved our decision to a date to be informed to the parties. These are my decision and the grounds of my judgment.
