JUDGMENT ON COSTS

________________________

Hon Cheung JA (giving Judgment of the Court) :

1. This Court, upon the defendant’s request, had agreed to treat the costs order stated in the judgment of 17 February 2011 to bea provisional costs order and directed that the Court would consider the costs issue upon the Labour Tribunal completing its determination.

2. The 6th claimant informed the Court on 14 June 2011 that the Labour Tribunal had made its determination.

3. We are of the view that the appropriate order is that each party should bear its own costs of the appeal and below. The 6th claimant’s own costs are to be taxed in accordance with Legal Aid Regulations.
