The Executive Committee of the Supreme Court Advocates On Record Association recently passed a resolution in its virtual meeting with 9 votes in favour and 3 dissenting that the Supreme Court Advocates-on-Record Welfare Trust has no relation to SCAORA and has asked the trust to stop using the words ‘Supreme Court Advocates-on-Record' in its name.
SCAORA stated in the notification that the use of such name as well as SCAORA's address by the said Trust has created the false impression that the said Trust is run or managed by SCAORA.
Another SCAORA contention is that the elected Executive Committee of SCAORA in office has no access to or control over the Trust property received by the Trust as a result of SCAORA's use of the words "Supreme Court Advocates-on-Record" in its name and address.The contributions that should have been legitimately credited to SCAORA for the benefit of its members have been received by the Trust, leaving SCAORA without funds.
SCAORA's record does not contain any GBM/Resolution of SCAORA authorizing the then EC to create the said Trust with SCAORA as Settlor on the terms set out in the Trust Deed, and there are no such amendments to SCAORA's Memorandum of Association to create the said Trust with SCAORA as Settlor on the terms set out in the Trust Deed.
As a result, the SCAORA EC passed a resolution with a majority of 9:3 that "SCAORA hereby calls upon the "Supreme Court Advocates-on-Record Welfare Trust" to cease using the words "Supreme Court Advocates-on-Record" in its name as well as the address of SCAORA in relation to its operations and activities, and to make any necessary corrections in all records pertaining to Trust".
