Hiscox Services Ltd and other companies v Abraham

Practice – Pre-trial or post-judgment relief. The Chancery Division continued a freezing order against the respondent, a former chief financial officer of the first applicant company (HSL), where, on the facts, there was no inhibition in the way of continuing it. The initial freezing order had been made in the exercise of the court's jurisdiction under s 25 of the Civil Jurisdiction and Judgments Act 1982 and in support of proceedings in Bermuda, in circumstances where HSL and its associated companies had alleged that the respondent had made, or procured the making of, suspicious payments from HSL of some US$1.847m to two suppliers and repairers of Swiss watches.
