Republic of Djibouti and others v Boreh and others

Injunction – Freezing injunction. In earlier proceedings, the court had set aside a freezing injunction against the first defendant on the ground that it had been misled by the claimant's former solicitors and that the claimants had not come to the court with clean hands. The claimants sought permission to seek a freezing injunction in Singapore. The Commercial Court, in dismissing the application, held that, where it had already held that the conduct which had led to the setting aside of the freezing injunction had been particularly disgraceful conduct, it would not sanction the obtaining by the claimants of freezing relief either in the United Kingdom or anywhere else.
