Kazakhstan Kagazy plc and other companies v Zhunus and others

Practice – Pre-trial or post-judgment relief. An application for, essentially, the staying of an obligation to provide disclosure in the context of a freezing order, pending the future determination of an application concerning a possible distribution of funds from a trust to an individual against whom the freezing order had been made (Mrs A), was not one to which the court could accede. The Commercial Court, in dismissing Mrs A's application for more time to give further disclosure of assets, applied the principle that an unresolved application to discharge a freezing order was no reason to excuse or delay full compliance with orders as to disclosure of assets that had otherwise been determined to be proper in the circumstances of the case.
