ABC and others v Telegraph Media Gp – press statement


A spokesman for the Judiciary said:

“This statement is to clarify some of the reporting of the case of ABC and others v Telegraph Media Group Ltd.

“The decision by the Court of Appeal in the judgment handed down on Tuesday was a temporary injunction preventing publication only until there can be a trial of the issues.

“The judgment said in paragraph 67:

“We appreciate that any delay in the publication of matters of public interest is undesirable.  That can be met to some extent, in the present case, by ordering a speedy trial.”
