JERSEY: £2 MILLION CONTEMPT OF COURT FINE OVER NON-DISCLOSURE OF ASSETS

On 4 February, an article from Appleby contained a warning of the risks of a fine for contempt of court (a criminal penalty, not a civil one).  This followed a £2 million fine for a litigant in a matter arising, inter alia, from a failure to provide disclosure of assets in a civil case before the Royal Court.   There is no statutory limit on the level of fine that the Jersey Court can impose for contempt.

I would be grateful for any modest contribution for my time and ongoing costs of computer, relocation, and (still ongoing) removal costs, I have a page, where contributions start as low as $3, at https://www.buymeacoffee.com/KoIvM842y
