Top court rules compensation should be proportionate to actual loss

Final judgement has been passed on the case of a family dispute regarding the sale of a property in 2014 which saw the mother suing her son and daughter-in-law for compensation as the couple sold the property, which was legally co-owned by the mother and her son, without the mother’s consent. The property was sold for MOP3.19 million. The first court ruled that the son and his wife should pay the mother MOP3 million in compensation and legal interests. After an appeal was not entertained by the second court, the case was appealed to the top court, which upheld the judgment of the first court and noted that the property could have been sold for at least MOP5.99 million.
