The Case

On an appeal against an order by the master that the claimants to the proceedings be paid their costs out of the funds of the mosque which had been the subject of the dispute, the court ruled, inter alia, that, absent the strongest evidence for the proposition there was no basis for holding that any mosque was outside the scope of court's power to make an order for costs; it would be rejected. Accordingly, the appeal would be dismissed.
