ABELA – V – BAADARANI  EWHC 2393 (Ch)
PCB acted for the claimants seeking to enforce costs orders and judgments in excess of US$20m. Having obtained an order for oral examination of the defendant as a judgment debtor, the claimants were not satisfied that the defendant had complied with his obligations to provide various bank statements and other documents relating to his assets. PCB therefore brought committal proceedings against the defendant. The Court found beyond reasonable doubt that the defendant was in contempt in a number of respects and adjourned the hearing in order to provide the defendant with an opportunity to disclose missing documents.
