Contempt of court - Committal - Appeal against committal - Claimant applying for conditions to be imposed upon contemnor's challenge against committal order - Contemnor arguing no justification for refusing to hear challenge - Whether conditions should be imposed on appeal against committal order.
Contempt of court Committal. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, held that it had been inappropriate to order that the defendant comply with certain conditions before his appeal against a committal order be heard, since to have done so would not have been in the interests of justice and would have denied him the opportunity to challenge the committal order.
