When the claimant in a suit obtains a monetary judgment against the respondent and the respondent refuses or fails to comply, there are several ways to enforce the judgment.

In this article, ABDULLAH ABDUL RAHMAN and APNIZAN ABDULLAH provide an overview of a common method of enforcement that is known as the third party debt order. In England, the third party debt order proceedings are governed by Part 72 of the Civil Procedure Rules. These proceedings are the successors to the garnishee proceedings under the repealed Rules of the Supreme Court (Revision) 1965. In Malaysia, the term ‘garnishee proceedings’ is still retained and these proceedings are governed by Order 49 of the Rules of Court 2012.
