Practice - Pre-trial or post-judgment relief - Freezing order - Application to re-impose freezing order - Freezing order discharged following consent order - Material change in circumstances - Whether consent order should be set aside.

The Case

A freezing order would be re-imposed in the form in which it had existed prior to the consent order being made in the instant case as, on the evidence, supervening events existed which undermined and invalidated the basis of that consent order, namely misrepresentation on the part of the first defendant.
