Dateline 2021-01-31, The Edge:
A former staff of Aker Solutions ASA (Norway), who had sued the oil services firm for alleged abuse of court process, has received the go-ahead to serve her court papers on her former employer in Europe.
A High Court order obtained by Seetha Kumarasamy last month, sighted by theedgemarket.com today, allows her to serve the documents out of Malaysia’s jurisdiction, and it is understood that she will do so after the documents are translated.
The Norwegian firm will have 21 days to respond to the suit upon receiving the documents.
Three Malaysian units of Aker Solutions, which have also been named as defendants in the suit, have already responded. They have appointed the legal firm of Skrine & Co to represent them.
