Obaid and others v Al-Hezaimi and others

Consent order – Construction. In the course of an action which alleged that the defendants had defrauded the claimants of some £35m concerning the purchase of certain properties, the Chancery Division construed the meaning and effect of a consent order that had been made following the discharge of a proprietary injunction and a worldwide freezing order in respect of the defendants. The court, in allowing the claimants' application, held that, on the true construction of the consent order, the protocol that had been agreed between the parties in relation to the remittance of rents concerning the properties had survived the making of the consent order and remained in place.
