Herewith my proposals for Court fees. The
case will have to run the gauntlet of the Foreign Department,
India Office The department of the British Government to which the Government of India reported between 1858 and 1947. The successor to the Court of Directors. , Foreign Office and Treasury, ana, from what I
know of that last abode of avarice. It win be necessary to
maxe out a very strong case to get them to pass the low fees
suggested.
ShalXh Jaslm has Just been conducting a campaign
against 'khldma', which he says is contrary to Shara, so we
must expect a great deal of opposition to even these low fees.
I hope that, in forwarding the case, you win make a strong
point of the feeling against fees for hearing as opposed to
'khldma 1 for extracting money, and also of the poverty of the
greater number of litigants. The total of 1 money values*
is very high, but 15 pearlx cases in which Bahrain subjects
were Interested accounted for nearly half.
The administration report, of which I sent you a copy with a
former letter on this subject^gives most of the'Information
you will want for putting up the case.
I doubt If the fees win be sanctioned for six
months, and the greater the delay the better,^It win give U b
people time to get accustomed to the more regular proceedings
under the Order before they are confronted with another
Innovation.
