A man jailed for murdering his wife's lover in a brutal honour killing is embroiled in a civil dispute with his brother, who he claims sold his taxi while he was in prison.
Hazairin Iskandar, 58, is suing his brother, Zulfriki Mahbur, and two acquaintances, Aminah Theglory and Wahyu Sasterawan, claiming they deceptively sold both his taxi and taxi licence plates while he was in custody in May 2010.
In a statement of claim tendered to the Supreme Court, Iskandar said a contract for the sale of his taxi was "procured by deceit" by his brother and Mr Sasterawan, who sold it to Mr Sasterawan's partner, Ms Theglory.
Iskandar claimed his brother and Mr Sasterawan visited him in prison on April 27 when he appointed his brother as power of attorney.
He told them to get the taxi from police and give it to a man named "Peter" to be used on a profit-share basis, the statement of claim said.
Instead, on May 5, 2010, the taxi was sold to Ms Theglory.
"The real object and intention of (Mr Mahbur) and (Mr Sasterawan) was to steal (Iskandar's) money," the statement said.
Iskandar, who was in court for the hearing, is seeking damages, costs and for the taxi sale to be set aside.
Justice Patricia Bergin will hand down her judgment at a later date.
