England and Wales not most appropriate jurisdiction for claim to be heard


Re: Ahuja v Politika Novine I Magazini [2015] EWHC 3380 (QB)

Claimant had been given permission for service out of jurisdiction in relation to claims for misuse of private information and libel against the defendants, a Serbian daily newspaper and associated individuals. The defendants sought to have this order set aside, contending that England and Wales was not the appropriate jurisdiction to hear this claims. Held: Order set aside.

Hugh Tomlinson QC and Sara Mansoori were involved in this case.
