This chapter discusses the rules on freezing injunctions. A freezing injunction is an interim order restraining a party from removing assets located within the jurisdiction out of the country, or from dealing with assets whether they are located within the jurisdiction or not. The order is usually restricted to assets not exceeding the value of the claim. The main purpose of a freezing injunction is to prevent the injustice of a defendant’s assets being salted away so as to deprive the claimant of the fruits of any judgment that may be obtained.
