In September 2013, a chinese national, Mr Huang and Lim Tean entered into an agreement in which Mr Huang agreed to lend US$150,000 to Mr Lim.

Mr Lim, who is a lawyer, argued that the sum was not a loan, but a down payment for the sale of iron ore to Mr Huang’s company in Hong Kong but failed to persuade a State Courts deputy registrar, who ordered Mr Lim to repay the loan. On appeal, the decision was affirmed by a district judge, who noted that the language of Mr Lim’s e-mail amounted to a clear admission that the sum was a loan. Mr Lim appealed to the High Court but withdrew the appeal on Jan 15. A day later, he issued two cheques to settle the debt and legal costs, ahead of a bankruptcy hearing scheduled on Jan 17.
