D E C I S I O N

________________________

1. I have heard the submissions of the plaintiff’s counsel. The basic issues in this case is whether the Notice to Quit dated 28May 2008 was validly served on the defendant for the purpose of terminating the lease in question. My judgment is that it that itwas not validly served, therefore the lease was not terminated.

2. Today, I am not convinced at all that my judgment on this fundamental point was wrong. I therefore dismiss this application forleave to appeal.

3. Costs of this application in the agreed sum of HK$12,000 be paid to the defendant by the plaintiff.

(Chow)
District Court Judge

Mr William Li, instructed by Alan Ho & Co, for the plaintiff
Mr Paul Kwong, of Paul Kwong & Co, for the defendant
