Mercantile Group (Europe) Ag v Aiyela and Others: CA 4 Aug 1993

Interlocutory injunctions including Mareva procedures and orders are available to support the enforcement of a judgment. The purpose of such a jurisdiction is so that the court can ‘ensure the effective enforcement of its orders’. A court may still make an order for disclosure and an injunction after judgment has been entered.
