      (1) All judgments and orders of the Court or any judge thereof, whether sitting in court or in chambers, whereby any sum of money, including any costs, charges, or expenses, shall be recovered by or shall be payable to any person shall have the same effect, and may be enforced by the same writs and process, as a judgment in an action at Common Law had, and could be enforced by, immediately before the commencement of this Act; and any person to whom any such sum of money, costs, charges, or expenses shall be payable shall be deemed to be a judgment creditor to all intents and for all purposes, and every person by whom such sum of money, costs, charges, or expenses shall be payable shall be deemed to be a judgment debtor.

      (2) Any such judgment or order may also be enforced by any other writs, process, or means provided by this Act or the Rules of Court for the enforcement of any such judgment or order.

      (3) Subject to the provisions of this Act and the Rules of Court, all judgments and orders of the Court or any judge thereof whether sitting in Court or in chambers –

(b) whereby any act other than the payment of money is directed to be done or performed;

(c) whereby any person is expressly directed or impliedly required to abstain from doing any act;

(d) for the recovery of any land; or

(e) for the recovery of any property other than money or land –

may be enforced by the same writs and process as such a judgment of the Court could be enforced by, in any part of the jurisdiction of the Court which is subject to this Act, immediately before the commencement of this Act, and also by any other writs, process, or means provided by this Act or the Rules of Court for the enforcement of such judgments and orders respectively.

      (4) Any judgment or order of a judge whether sitting in court or in chambers may be enforced by the same writs, process, and means as it could be enforced by if it were a judgment of a Full Court.

      (5) Subject to the provisions of this Act and the Rules of Court, the Court or a judge may, in any case in which it is just or convenient so to do, grant such equitable relief in aid of or in substitution for execution on or under any judgment or order of the Court or a judge as the circumstances of the case may require.
