Aviva Insurance Ltd v Randive

Contempt of court – Contempt of court for making false statement in document verified by statement of truth without honest belief in its truth. The Queen's Bench Division granted the applicant insurer permission to pursue proceedings for contempt of court against the respondent in respect of three of the four alleged grounds. There was a strong prima facie case on those three grounds and, in the interests of justice and the overriding objective, it was proportionate for contempt proceedings to be pursued.
