High Court Rules Against Heirs Of Cooper Estate
By Ballah M. Kollie

MONROVIA, September 12 (LINA) - The Supreme Court has directed that beneficiaries of the intestate estate of the late Aaron D. Cooper settle all costs and expenses incurred by the Redifussion Liberia Limited, represented by Rajinder Pal Singh Dhaliwal and Divinder Pal Singh Dhaliwal.

The court’s decision is a result of a petition filed by the intestate estate of the late Aaron D. Cooper represented by Edwin Cooper, calling for the cancellation of a lease agreement they entered into with the Redifussion Liberia Limited.

The Court ruled that evidence shows that the beneficiaries of the Estate have engaged in a pattern of questionable conduct by which they benefited from the proceeds of the multiple agreements of lease executed between them and other parties, thereby imposing unnecessary hardship on the other parties.

The Court thereby directed that all costs and expenses incurred by the plaintiffs, Redifussion Liberia Limited, in the litigation of these proceedings, including fees charged by attorneys in litigation, shall be paid by the heirs of the Aaron D. Cooper Estate.

The high court also ruled for the enforcement of the 1974 lease agreement with its extension for 20 years against the heirs of the late Cooper Estate.

According to the court, Redifussion Liberia Limited or its representatives, Rajinder Pal Singh Dhaliwal and Divinder Pal Singh Dhaliwal, remained entitled to the unhindered collection of all proceeds derived from the dismissed premises.

The Court reached the decision at the weekend.
