Removal of illegal structures: seeking leave to appeal

In Incorporated Owners of Champion Court v Pang ([2011] HKEC 587, CA) the defendants had added illegal structures  to their property. The deputy District Judge had ordered their removal and the Court of Appeal confirmed this order. The plaintiffs later obtained an order entitling them to have the remedial works carried out at the defendants’ expense. The judge refused leave to appeal. The defendants asked the Court of Appeal for leave to appeal. This required the defendants to show that they had a reasonable prospect of success or that there was some other reason in the interests of justice why the appeal should be heard (District Court Ordinance Cap. 336, s. 63A(2)). The Court of Appeal refused to grant leave to appeal.
