Final report of the Financial Remedies Court (FRC) Sub-Group of the Transparency Implementation Group

Terms of Reference

To consider all aspects of Transparency as far as it concerns the work of the Financial Remedies Court and to report as to suggested ways forward.

The areas to be covered will include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Should FRC cases be heard in Private or in Open Court;
  • Should the parties remain anonymous;
  • What documents, if any, should be made available to the press/legal bloggers;
  • How should highly confidential information (including that which is commercially sensitive) be considered;
  • Contents of published judgments;
  • How to ensure a greater number of judgments in cases involving a lower level of assets, which are generally heard by the District bench can be published.

In making any recommendations the Sub-Group will consider whether any amendments to the FPR and/or primary legislation would be required to enact such recommendations.
