Cyprus Popular Bank Public Co Ltd v Vgenopoulos and others

Practice – Pre-trial or post-judgment relief. The Queen's Bench Division held that a freezing order made in Cyprus would not become immediately fully effective and enforceable on the making of a registration order in England but, the defendants having appealed against the registration order, would only become fully effective and enforceable on determination of that appeal. In view of the nature of the underlying order with which the registration order was concerned, 'measures of enforcement', as referred to in para 4 of the registration order, included service of the Cypriot order on, and/or notification of its terms to, third parties in order to give effect to the terms of the Cypriot order as a judgment of the English court.
