    Whilst IIB and Bankers Trust could provide little evidence of actual detriment should the judgment be published, Moscow has provided equally no good reason for requiring publication either, since it can freely state the end result of the arbitration and the end result of the litigation. In many arbitrations the position may be different, but the terms of CPR 62.10, for the reasons given, provide a strong pointer to the way in which the courts should approach such matters.

  • Hodgson v Imperial Tobacco Ltd
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 12 Feb 1998

    A distinction has to be clearly drawn between the normal situation where a court sits in chambers and when a court sits in camera in the exceptional situations recognised in Scott v Scott [1913] A.C.417 or the court sits in chambers and the case falls in the categories specified in section 12(1) of the 1960 Act (which include issues involving children, national security, secret processes and the like). Section 12(1) also refers to the court having prohibited publication.

  • R v Legal Aid Board, ex parte Kaim Todner (A Firm)
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 10 Jun 1998

    The need to be vigilant arises from the natural tendency for the general principle to be eroded and for exceptions to grow by accretion as the exceptions are applied by analogy to existing cases. It is necessary because the public nature of proceedings deters inappropriate behaviour on the part of the court. It also maintains the public's confidence in the administration of justice. It enables the public to know that justice is being administered impartially.

  • Attorney General v Leveller Magazine Ltd
    • House of Lords
    • 01 Feb 1979

    And what appears certain is that at common law the fact that a court sat wholly or partly in camera, and even where in such circumstances the court gave a direction prohibiting publication of information relating to what had been said or done behind closed doors, publication thereafter did not of itself and in every case necessarily mean that there had been contempt of court.

    Secondly, trials are conducted on the basis of the principle of natural justice. A party has a right to know the case against him and the evidence on which it is based. He is entitled to have the opportunity to respond to any such evidence and to any submissions made by the other side. The other side may not advance contentions or adduce evidence of which he is kept in ignorance. The Privy Council said in the civil case of Kanda v Government of Malaya [1962] AC 322, 337:

    • Court of Appeal (Criminal Division)
    • 24 Set 2014

    We have already outlined the Court's power to hear a trial or part of a trial in camera. We are persuaded on the evidence before us that there is a significant risk – at the very least, a serious possibility – that the administration of justice would be frustrated were the trial to be conducted in open Court. Indeed, we go further: on all the material, the case for the core of the trial to be heard in camera is compelling and we accede to it.

    In his open judgment, dated 19 th May, Nicol J referred to the witness statement dated 12 th May, 2014, made by Ms Mari Reid, the Unit Head of the Counter Terrorism team in the Special Crime and Counter Terrorism Division of the Crown Prosecution Service. Ms Reid there made reference to both the Certificates and the Schedules.
