The main purpose of your query was as regards to the period of limitation and nothing else; and I believe I've answered that adequately!

How to establish such a weak case which is essentially lacking in substance is your problem....(you didn't ask us that in your 'original' question or did you?)!

Anyway, as I understand, when the money was lent, the creditor must have applied at least some common sense (orally) in order to get his money back; and the borrower also must have agreed to repay the money under those conditions. If this is so, a promise has been made between them and if the borrower/defaulter admits of this fact in court then a cause of action does lie.

Moreover, I've heard that in the event of a verbal agreement witnesses' testimony can be relied upon.

I hope that answers your question in toto!
