BELLETTI – V – MORICI  EWHC 2316 (Comm)
PCB acted for the parents of the main defendant, who were resident in Italy. The English court had already granted a freezing order under s25 of the Civil Jurisdiction and Judgments Act 1982 in support of substantive proceedings taking place against the main defendant for investment fraud. The claimants then sought to extend that freezing order against the parents on the basis that they had assisted in the concealment of substantial assets. PCB however applied successfully to set aside the freezing order against the parents on the basis that as they were neither resident in England nor had any assets in England, it was not appropriate for such an order to be made.
