Emmerson International Corp v Renova Holding Ltd (British Virgin Islands)

Practice – Injunction. The appellant had had an entitlement to appeal as of right against the variation of a freezing order imposing a confidentiality club by virtue of s 30(4)(ii) of the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court (Virgin Islands) Act. The Privy Council, in advising Her Majesty that the appeal should be allowed, held that, for the purposes of application of s 30(4)(ii), it made no difference that the confidentiality club had been imposed later on by way of a variation of the terms of the freezing order, since the effect of such a variation was that a new injunction in different terms was put in place.
