On an application by the Claimant for interim relief
Following consideration of the documents lodged by the Claimant
ORDER by the Honourable Mrs Justice Stacey

  1. The application for anonymity is granted, and pursuant to section 11 of the Contempt of Court Act 1981, section 6 of the Human Rights Act 1998, CPR rule 5.4D-5.4D and Rule 39.2, with effect from the date of this order and until further order:
    a) There shall be substituted for all purposes in this case, in place of references to the Claimant’s name, reference to “KDZ”;
    b) There shall be no publication of any name, address, picture or other information likely to lead to the identification of the Claimant or her family being the Claimant or her family in these proceedings,
    c) “Publication” means communication to the public or any section of the public. It includes publication in a newspaper or broadcast, or on the internet, by any person;
    d) The Defendant, and any party served with or given notice of the anonymity order, has permission to apply to discharge or vary that order. Any application for that purpose must be made in writing, on notice to all parties;
    e) Any application for permission to inspect or obtain a non-anonymised version of a document must be made on notice to the Claimant and in accordance with CPR r.5.4C(6).
  2. The Defendant shall file and serve its response to the interim relief application together with any evidence upon which she wishes to rely by 4pm on Monday 16 January 2023.
  3. Thereafter the papers will be placed before a judge or deputy judge to consider the application for interim relief and for further direction or order.
  4. Liberty to apply to vary or set aside this order on reasonable notice.
  5. Costs reserved.


  1. The Claimant seeks interim relief in the form of a mandatory injunction, but before a decision can be made on the application the Defendant must have the opportunity to respond to it. On receipt of the Defendant’s response to the application or after 4pm 16 January 2023 (whichever is the sooner) the matter can be referred back to a judge or deputy judge for further consideration, direction or order.
  2. It appears from the application that an anonymity order is necessary to secure the proper administration of justice and in order to protect the interests of the Claimant.
