Here are the facts.

1. What can I do if I was misinformed about the hearing date for the Creditor's Petition? I received the lawyer's written notice to attend the hearing on, (example) 22 May 2017, and when I went to the court, was informed that the hearing was already completed on 21 March 2017 and an Receiving Order/Adjudication Order (RO/AO) issued, in my absence, in favour of their client. I was therefore declared Judgement Debtor.

2. I went to see the presiding Penolong Kanan Pendaftar (PKP). She looked over the lawyer's notice and was perplexed, but she informed me that, yes, the case was already closed, and that she cannot just "withdraw" the judgement. She said that I'd have to liaise with bank's lawyer to inquire about the confusion/misinformation of dates.

My apologies if I inadvertently use some terms inappropriately.

Would be much obliged if anyone can shed light on what I can do about this.
