48 Matters already finalised or pending


No order made by the Chief Judge under section 44, or made by the Appellate Court on appeal from any such order, shall take away or affect any right or interest acquired for value and in good faith under any instrument of alienation registered before the making of any such order.


No payment made in good faith pursuant to or for the purposes of the original order shall be deemed to have been made without lawful authority merely because that order has been cancelled or amended by an order made under section 44.


Notwithstanding that an application has been made under section 45, any trustee or agent holding any money for distribution may, unless an injunction under section 19(1)(d) has been obtained and served on the trustee, distribute the money to the person entitled to it in accordance with the terms of the order to which the application relates.


Where such an injunction is obtained, the Chief Judge may, in the order made pursuant to the application or by a separate order, determine the persons to whom any money to which the injunction relates shall be paid and their relative shares or interests in the money.
