Adverse possession: land owned by Tong but no evidence of the birth of a new member

In Wealth Hill International Limited v Wong Kwan Siu ([2013] HKEC 838, CFI) a Tong was the registered owner of land. W had been in adverse possession for the necessary twenty year period. If a new member of the Tong had had been born, the limitation period would have started to run again ([72]). Here, however, there was no evidence of such a birth. W had defeated the Tong‘s title.
