*Boreh v Republic of Djibouti and others

Practice – Pre-trial or post-judgment relief. The claimants alleged that the defendant, B, had appropriated money whilst in public office in Djibouti. They obtained freezing injunctions, among other things, against him. In the course of obtaining the injunctions, a solicitor working for the claimants misled the court. B applied to have the injunctions dismissed. The Commercial Court held that, in the circumstances, the freezing injunctions would be dismissed, although a proprietary injunction would remain.
