1. The identity of the Claimant as a party to these proceedings is protected and shall not be published.

2. Pursuant to CPR Rule 39.2(4), there shall not be disclosed in any report of these proceedings or other publication and until further order, the publication in connection with these proceedings of the Claimant’s name, or any particulars or details which could lead to his identification. The Claimant’s name shall be anonymised and he shall be known by the initials ‘KKD’.

4. Costs in the case.


1. Having considered the Statement of Facts and Grounds, I consider that this is an appropriate case in which I should make an anonymity order. In my view, the anonymity order is appropriate in circumstances where this application concerns a victim of trafficking (including physical abuse) and a vulnerable adult.

2. I also accept the Defendant’s submission in the Summary of Grounds that the claim should have been brought in UTIAC. In accordance with paragraph 6.5.2 of the Administrative Court Guide 2023 and the LCJ’s Practice Direction, I am transferring the case to UTIAC.
