Any creditor may appear on the hearing of the bankrupt's application for discharge and may make representations and put to the bankrupt such questions as the court allows1.
Although creditors are under no obligation to appear on the hearing of an application for discharge, they must not contract themselves out of the opportunity of appearing2. Such contracts are illegal3; and an agreement by a trustee binding himself, at the instance of the bankrupt, to prevent any objection by the creditors to an order of discharge is most improper
