High Court orders compliance with freezing order despite challenge to jurisdiction

In JSC BTA Bank v Ablyazov and others [2010] EWHC 2219 (QB), the High Court considered whether it could make an order that, unless the respondents complied with their disclosure obligations under a freezing order, they would be barred from defending a claim, despite their challenge to the court's jurisdiction.

Subsequently, in JSC BTA Bank v Ablyazov [2011] EWHC 1522 (Comm), the court made an order for directions in relation to an application seeking the committal of Mr Ablayazov for contempt of court. The court considered the number of allegations of contempt to be tried and when, the particulars of the allegations, disclosure and privacy.
