Circular No: 005/2022
Date: 12 January 2022
Dear Members of the Kuala Lumpur Bar,
On 7 January 2021, the Federal Government had published a Government Gazette setting out a list of unclaimed deposits presently held by the Kuala Lumpur High Court and Kuala Lumpur Subordinate Courts for a period of 10 years or more.
We encourage firms/depositors who have unclaimed deposits to make a claim for a refund of the same. Kindly note that any unclaimed deposits for a period of more than 15 years will be transferred and paid to the Government pursuant to Order 90 Rules 16 and 17 of the Rules of Court 2012.
Please refer to the list of accounts with unclaimed deposits published in the Government Gazette. The document is PDF-searchable for your ease of reference.
Kindly take note.
