R (on the application of OJSC Rosneft Oil Company) v HM Treasury and others

Practice – Interim remedy. The claimant sought, amongst other things, a stay of art 5A of the Export Control (Russia, Crimea and Sevastopol Sanctions) (Amendment) Order 2014, SI 2014/2932. The Administrative Court, in dismissing the application, held that the provisions were sufficiently certain and there was no risk of serious or irreparable damage to the claimant. Further, interim relief would inevitably risk lessening the effectiveness of the European Union sanctions, such that the balance of convenience plainly favoured allowing art 5A of the Order to come into effect.
