Alim ODUMA LEBBE MARIKAR AHMED LEBBE MARIKAR (Millionaire)

Oduma Lebbe Marikar Ahmed Lebbe Marikar Alim (OLMALM Alim) was one of the wealthy amongst the Ceylon Moors in Colombo. He did extensive hardware business and was possessed of several immovable properties.

He had several sons who managed each department of his businesses. He passed away in 1917 and his estate was valued at approximately two million rupees.

When his last will was submitted to court some of his heirs contested it. The will was not proved and the Court declared that he had died intestate. The Supreme Court rejected the appeal and preparations were being made by the heirs to appela to the Privy Council. Some of the elders in the community advised them to stop legal proceedings and allocate the properties to the heirs. The parties concerned agreed to the selection of S.L.Naina-Marikar Hajiar as the arbitrator and his award was accepted as final.
