*Public Joint Stock Company Vseukrainskyi Aktsionernyi Bank v Maksimov and others

Contempt of court – Committal. The claimant bank applied to commit the first defendant to prison for contempt for breaching two worldwide freezing orders. The Commercial Court found that the first defendant had failed to provide disclosure of his assets and had knowingly assisted companies' failure to provide disclosure of their assets. However, the other three grounds of alleged contempt were rejected, as the claimant had not established breach of the orders to the criminal standard.
