Volaw Trust and Corporate Services Ltd and others v Office of the Comptroller of Taxes and another; Volaw Trust and Corporate Services Ltd and others v Her Majesty's Attorney General for Jersey (Jersey)

Human rights – Right to a fair hearing. Notices issued by the respondent Comptroller of Taxes and Attorney General for Jersey, requesting information from the first appellant company, did not, in themselves, deprive any of the appellants of their right to a fair trial, in particular, the privilege against self-incrimination. Accordingly, the Privy Council dismissed the appellants' appeals against the decisions dismissing their applications for judicial review of the notices and the regulations they were made under.
