—(1) Subject to paragraph (2), every pleading must contain the necessary particulars of any claim, defence or other matter pleaded including, without prejudice to the generality of the foregoing words —
particulars of any misrepresentation, fraud, breach of trust, wilful default or undue influence on which the party pleading relies; and
where a party pleading alleges any condition of the mind of any person, whether any disorder or disability of mind or any malice, fraudulent intention or other condition of mind except knowledge, particulars of the facts on which the party relies.
(1A) Subject to paragraph (1B), a plaintiff in an action for personal injuries shall serve with his statement of claim —
a medical report; and
a statement of the special damages claimed.
(1B) Where the documents to which paragraph (1A) applies are not served with the statement of claim, the Court may —
specify the period of the time within which they are to be provided; or
make such other order as it thinks fit (including an order dispensing with the requirements of paragraph (1A) or staying the proceedings).
(1C) For the purposes of this Rule —
“medical report” means a report substantiating all the personal injuries alleged in the statement of claim which the plaintiff proposes to adduce in evidence as part of his case at the trial;
“a statement of the special damages claimed” means a statement giving full particulars of the special damages claimed for expenses and losses already incurred and an estimate of any future expenses and losses (including loss of earnings, loss of Central Provident Fund contributions and loss of pension rights).
(2) Where it is necessary to give particulars of debt, expenses or damages and those particulars exceed 3 folios, they must be set out in a separate document referred to in the pleading and the pleading must state whether the document has already been served and, if so, when, or is to be served with the pleading.
(3) The Court may order a party to serve on any other party particulars of any claim, defence or other matter stated in his pleading, or in any affidavit of his ordered to stand as a pleading, or a statement of the nature of the case on which he relies, and the order may be made on such terms as the Court thinks just.
(4) Where a party alleges as a fact that a person had knowledge or notice of some fact, matter or thing, then, without prejudice to the generality of paragraph (3), the Court may, on such terms as it thinks just, order that party to serve on any other party —
where he alleges knowledge, particulars of the facts on which he relies; and
where he alleges notice, particulars of the notice.
(5) An order under this Rule shall not be made before service of the defence unless, in the opinion of the Court, the order is necessary or desirable to enable the defendant to plead or for some other special reason.
(6) Where the applicant for an order under this Rule did not apply by letter for the particulars he requires, the Court may refuse to make the order unless of opinion that there were sufficient reasons for an application by letter not having been made.
(7) The particulars requested or ordered and supplied must be served in accordance with Form 29.
