Supreme Court poised for verdict on access to documents

first_imgThe Supreme Court will reveal on Monday whether third parties should have access to court documents for litigation where they were not directly involved.Experts suggest the outcome of Cape Intermediate Holdings Ltd v Dring (for and on behalf of Asbestos Victims Support Groups Forum UK) will have significant repercussions for the principle of open justice and court discretion about access to documents.The respondent in the appeal, a group providing support to those who suffer from asbestos-related diseases, applied for copies of documents used in two sets of proceedings involving Cape. These cases settled after trial but before judgment.Master McCloud allowed the group’s application, and Mr Justice Martin Spencer granted Cape permission to appeal, ordering that the appeal be heard by the Court of Appeal.That court allowed Cape’s appeal, holding that for the purposes of Civil Procedure Rule 5.4C(2), ‘records of the court’ did not extend to witness statements, expert reports, trial bundles, transcripts or written submissions. This is being challenged by the Forum.But judges also held the court has inherent jurisdiction to allow non-parties inspection of witness statements, expert reports and documents read out in open court or which the judge was invited to read in or outside of court. This part of the decision is being challenged by Cape and forms the subject of the appeal to the Supreme Court.The Supreme Court says in its explanation of the case that justices will decide what powers the court holds pursuant to the CPR or its inherent jurisdiction, to allow access to documents used in litigation. Judgment will be handed down on Monday.Writing after the Court of Appeal judgment last year, Nick Pargeter, partner at national insurance law firm BLM, said the decision would circumscribe the scope of ‘what may otherwise have become commonplace applications’ by claimant firms to inspect documents in compromised litigation.last_img read more

Abia Warriors Unveil New Boss Imama Amapakabo

first_imgNigeria Professional Football League side Abia Warriors have unveiled former Enugu Rangers coach Imama Amapakabo as their new head coach in a ceremony at the Umuahia Township Stadium on Wednesday.Amapakabo has signed a two-year deal with the Umuahia-based outfit and has been tasked with “taking Abia Warriors Football Club to the next level” a club statement said.Amapakabo, who has also managed El Kanemi Warriors was most recently, assistant coach Super Eagles coach and head coach of the home-based Eagles and U23 national team but was let go after the expiration of his contract.He replaces Willy Udube who was placed in temporary charge following the resignation of Cameroonian Emmanuel Deutsch before the season was suspended because of the coronavirus pandemic.Amapakabo was catapulted into national fame when he led Enugu Rangers to a first league title in 30 years in 2016.He was sacked by the Flying Antelopes shortly after and was snapped up by El Kanemi in 2017 on a one-year deal but left the Maiduguri-based club at the end of the season after the club declined to renew his contract.Amapakabo was part of the Super Eagles manager Gernot Rohr’s backroom staff as an assistant coach at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia and the 2019 AFCON in Egypt where Nigeria finished in third place.As Super Eagles assistant coach, he also had overall responsibility for the home-based Eagles and U23 national teams and in those roles, he oversaw a string of disastrous results that saw his once-promising stock plummet.Read Also: CHAN 2020: Nigeria’s Failure To Qualify Is “God’s Perfect Will” – Amapakabo (AUDIO)Amapakabo oversaw a poor showing at the WAFU Nations Cup in Senegal then followed it up with failure to qualify the home-based Super Eagles for the 2020 CHAN – both times falling to Togo’s Sparrow Hawks all in the space of less than a month.With him at the helm, the Olympic Eagles failed to defend their title at the 3rd U23 AFCON in Egypt suffering an early exit from the tournament and ultimately missing out of the football event of the now postponed 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, Japan.His appointment by Abia Warriors sees a return to club management for the first time in three years.RelatedImama Amapakabo Appointed Abia Warriors Head CoachJuly 9, 2020In “Featured”Imama Amapakabo Dreams of Glory At New Club Abia Warriors (AUDIO)July 24, 2020In “Featured”NPFL: Ojo Reveals Amapakabo’s Role In Abia Warriors Transfer (AUDIO)August 15, 2020In “Featured”last_img read more

Rassie can trust my front row, says Bulls scrum guru

first_imgFormer Springbok prop and Bulls scrum guru, Daan Human, has back his front row of of Trevor Nyakane, Lizo Gqoboka and Schalk Brits to have their say when the national team takes on Argentina in Salta on Saturday.South Africa can clinch this year’s shortened Rugby Championship title for the first time since 2009 with a bonus point win.ALSO READ: Springboks will make ‘brave calls’ against PumasThe 43-year-old, who played four Tests under Rudolf Straeuli in 2002, is credited with transforming the trio into arguably the best scrumming combination in 2019’s Super Rugby campaign, with Nyakane in particular carrying that form with him to international level.Daan Human. (Photo by Shaun Roy/Gallo Images)“Trevor and Lizo started every game of Super Rugby, so one must feel satisfied with that. On the first day of the season one would not have believed that was possible. So I’m very proud of them,” said Human.“I’m very proud of our front row. They worked very hard.”The former Stormers and Toulouse loosehead though isn’t remotely suggesting that the Boks should underestimate the Pumas’ set-piece, despite their scrum struggling in the first two rounds of this year’s tournament.He singled out talismanic hooker Augustin Creevy, who returns from injury this weekend, as a danger man.“All these years we’ve known about the Argentina scrumming and Creevy is a meneer with all his experience,” said Human.Yet he also notes that should Bok coach Rassie Erasmus select any of the trio later on Wednesday, they’ll hold their own against any scrumming assault simply because they keep it simple.“That’s where our system had a good impact, they keep a straight back and attack, which is what I like, and they found their feet quickly.“They’re not always going to go forward because it’s a team effort, but it’s easy with guys who want to listen, then the scrum is not that complicated,” Human said.For more sport your way, download The Citizen’s app for iOS and Android.last_img read more
