Power and others v Hodges and others

Contempt of court – Committal. The liquidators of a company applied to the Chancery Division to commit the company's directors for contempt of court in failing to comply with a disclosure order. The court imposed fines on two of the four directors whose breach had been by reason of the conduct of others because the funding and structure of the disclosure exercise had been in the hands of the other two directors. The remaining two directors, who had agreed to fund the disclosure exercise, were sentenced to imprisonment on a suspended basis.
