Court of Appeal to determine on privacy in financial remedies proceedings

Husband seeks to overturn order that couple can be named

The Guardian reports that the Court of Appeal will determine whether the identities of a wealthy foreign businessman and his former wife who have been involved in a lengthy financial remedies dispute should remain secret.

The husband has claimed, according to the report, that reporting of the case should be anonymised because of safety concerns. In the High Court, before Mr Justice Moor, The Times successfully resisted such reporting restrictions. However, the husband has now appealed to the Court of Appeal and Moor J has ordered that the couple's identities should remain private until the Court of Appeal has decided the issue.
