Aviva Insurance Ltd v Nazir and another

Contempt of court – Criminal contempt. CCTV evidence from police pursing other enquires adjacent to the accident location was convincing evidence of a staged accident. Accordingly, the Queen's Bench Division, on the claimant insurer's application, held that the defendants were in contempt of court, as they had both known they had been involving themselves in a staged accident and had to have known that, following that, they would make a claim which was dishonest.
