    MAGNA CARTA AND COMPENSATION CULTURE*
    by
    LORD DYSON, MASTER OF THE ROLLS

    (1) Introduction[1]

    1. My first idea was to give a lecture about the so-called Compensation Culture: what is it and should we be concerned about it? That is a topical subject which the organisers of the lecture thought would be of interest. But as we all know, 2015 is the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta and it was pointed out to me that the Bodleian Library has no fewer than 4 of the 17 surviving pre-1300 engrossments of Magna Carta? So I was asked whether I could introduce a Magna Carta theme into my lecture? I did not want to give up on Compensation Culture. Hence the somewhat Delphic title of the lecture "Magna Carta and the Compensation Culture". The title was the easy bit.

    2. On Christmas Eve 1166, Henry II’s youngest son John was born at Beaumont Palace in this great city. The Palace no longer exists, but set into a pillar on the north side of Beaumont Street is a stone which bears the inscription “near to this site stood the King’s Houses later known as Beaumont Palace”. John was not a good king. According to one historian he was not even a good ‘bad’ king’. Unlike his Angevin predecessors who were ‘effective tyrants’, John did not even qualify to earn that doubtful accolade. As we approach the end of 2015, we do not need to be reminded that the most enduring consequence of John’s reign is Magna Carta.

    COMMON ACTUS & MENS REA
    by
    DR. ABRAHAM MATHEW*

    S. 38 on the Penal Code provides that where several persons are engaged or concerned in the commission of a criminal act, they may be guilty of different offences by means of that act. By s. 34, when a criminal act is done by several persons, in furtherance of the common intention of all, each of such persons is liable for that act in the same manner as if the act were done by him alone. In other words each of several persons liable for an act done by all, in like manner as if done by him alone.

    S. 34 of the Code carves out an exception from the general law that a person is responsible for his own act, as it provides that a person can also be held vicariously responsible for the act of others if he has the “common intention” to commit the offence. The phrase “common intention” implies a prearranged plan and acting in concert pursuant to the plan. Thus, the common intention must be there prior to the commission of the offence in point of time. The common intention to bring about a particular result may also well develop on the spot as between a number of persons, with reference to the facts of the case and circumstances existing thereto.[1]

    In law, common intention requires a prior meeting of the minds and presupposes some prior concert. Proof of holding the same intention or of sharing some other intention, is not enough. There must be proved either by direct or by circumstantial evidence that there was:[2]

    MANDATORY INSURANCE BUT NOT GUARANTEED COMPENSATION
    by
    CHARLES NICHOLSON* & CHERYL NICHOLSON**

    Introduction

    In the field of motor insurance, the Malaysian Parliament has enacted provisions under Part IV of the Road Transport Act 1987 to make it mandatory for motor vehicle users to have in force a policy of insurance in respect of the risks of bodily injury and death to third parties.

    This article examines the current position of the law on compulsory third party insurance and highlights the legal challenges that courts are confronted with in interpreting legislative provisions to determine the scope of their applications when tasked to resolve disputes between claimants for guaranteed compensation under the scheme and insurers seeking to rely on these provisions to avoid liability. It focuses on the rights of passengers under the mandatory insurance scheme and the duty of the insurer to satisfy the judgment sum under s. 96 of the Road Transport Act 1987.

    Compensation Under Compulsory Third Party Insurance Scheme

    A contract of insurance is described as a contract whereby one party (the insurer) in consideration of a sum of money called the premium agrees to indemnify another (the insured) against a loss which the insured may suffer upon the occurrence of a specified uncertain event or to pay a certain definite sum of money on the happening of the particular event. The contract is entered into with reference to the occurrence of some specified event, the happening of which involves some element of uncertainty.[1] Similarly, a motor insurance policy effected by a motorist is essentially a contract between the policy holder and the insurer. At common law, only a person who is a party to a contract is entitled to sue on the contract. This rule of privity of contract was restated by Lord Haldane in Dunlop Pneumatic Tyre Co Ltd v. Selfridge & Co Ltd:

    In the law of England certain principles are fundamental. One is that only a person who is a party to a contract can sue on it. Our law knows nothing of a jus quaesitum tertio arising by way of contract. Such a right may be conferred by way of property, as, for example, under a trust, but it cannot be conferred on a stranger to a contract as a right to enforce the contract in personam.[2]
