Azimah Omar JCA:

[1] This is an appeal against the Learned High Court Judge's ("Learned Judge") decision dated 28th of June 2022 to allow the Respondent's claim against the Appellants for the tort of false imprisonment in respect of the remand of the Respondent under s 4(1) of the Prevention of Crimes Act 1959 ("POCA"). For convenience we shall refer to the parties by their titles in the High Court, ie Appellants as "the Defendants" and the Respondent as "the Plaintiff".
