There are some occassions when we use a semi colon after the parenthesis ending the statement viz {}; Which are these occassions and why?

The main place that I see this commonly used is when you are using anonymous inner classes such as a on click listener that uses this.
I do not want to confuse you by me trying to explain it my self but I think this is what you would want to know for this specific instance of the use behind anonymous inner classes. https://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/java/javaOO/anonymousclasses.html#syntax-of-anonymous-classes If im way off on what you are asking please let me know so i can try to help you out thanks.
