Customer Question

Hi Pearl
JA: Where is this? It matters because laws vary by location.
Customer: I am based in London
JA: What steps have you taken so far?
Customer: nothing, I would like to see legal advise
JA: Anything else you want the Lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: It's basically a land issue in Iraq but I have received a letter yesterday from UK solicitors firm advising that the case will be taken to High Court here. Does this sound right? If it's an issue in Iraq, can it be transferred to High Court here, in London? Or is it simply a threat to scare?

in Iraq
Expert:  Ed Turner replied 6 days ago.

In that case, you should defend the claim on the basis that the Courts of England and Wales have no jurisdiction to hear the claim and it should be struck out as an abuse of process.
