Land dispute is Kota Kinabalu Native Court’s first case 
Every person of Sabah origin can file a case at any district native court for cases involving engagements, marriages, divorces, adoptions, childcare, children’s expenses, land boundary disputes, gifts or inheritance with will and without will.
Kota Kinabalu: The Kota Kinabalu District Native Court (Mand) held the hearing of the first case for this year at the City Court, Kota Kinabalu City Hall (DBKK), here, recently.

DBKK said in a statement that the hearing was conducted by District Native Court Judges, led by Kota Kinabalu Mayor Datuk Seri Dr Sabin Samitah, assisted by two judges from the Native Court, OKK District Chief Edna Jessica Majimbun and Native Chief Roger Meylin Impou.

The case involved a village land lot dispute in Kampung Tenggiling, Menggatal.

The next Kota Kinabalu district native court case hearing session was scheduled for the end of February.

Every person of Sabah origin can file a case at any district native court for cases involving engagements, marriages, divorces, adoptions, childcare, children’s expenses, land boundary disputes, gifts or inheritance with will and without will.

The court operates and functions in accordance with the Native Court Enactment 1992.

The cases that are tried at the district native court-level are cases of review or appeal on any decision of the Native Court (MAN) from the relevant parties.

The Kota Kinabalu district native court operates on the 7th Floor of the Centre Point Sabah (CPS) building and is placed under the supervision of the Legal Department of DBKK.

It operates during office hours from 8am to 5pm, Monday to Friday, except on public holidays.

Under the Native Court Enactment (Amendment) 2011, Section 4 explains the establishment of the native district court, among others, stating that it must consist of the Mayor of a city as the head and two other members, namely the District Head or Native Head who are residents in the district and fully authorised by the Secretary of the State Government to carry out sentencing in the court.

For this year, a total of seven cases will be heard, including the case that was heard on Feb 7.

Since 2012, a total of 52 cases had been registered at Kota Kinabalu district native court.
