UK Insurance Ltd v Ali [2024] EWHC 30 (KB)


Contempt: procedure, permission and prison capacity. In a contempt application the Court considered when permission is required in relation to allegations of interference with the administration of justice in ‘existing’ proceedings and the relevance of overlapping allegations which do require permission. The Court went on to consider whether the permission threshold had been crossed, considering the public interest, proportionality, and the proper application of the overriding objective. Prison capacity, whilst a factor in sentencing (cf. R v Ali [2023] EWCA Crim 232), was not a factor in determining whether to grant permission to pursue a contempt application.
