The Royal Court has handed down judgment in Ariel –v- Halabi [2018] JRC 006A where a UK based trustee-in-bankruptcy (the Trustee) sought a variation of an earlier order to allow him to disclose to HMRC documents that he had obtained from Jersey institutions in the course of administering the bankruptcy. In a judgment likely to prove controversial, the Jersey court held that it had power to grant permission and did in fact do so. Justin Harvey-Hills (Partner), Luke Olivier (Senior Associate) and Ben Thorp (Associate) are acting for the parties resisting disclosure.
