This chapter discusses and interprets new procedures that can be used to prevent offenders from committing wrongs. Apart from Statutes, which give a power of arrest to the constable, there have been interesting developments of law. New procedures have been invented which have an analogy with the search warrant. Many frauds or other wrongs are committed in secret. The offenders may have the papers or the items of fraud in their possession. If forewarned, they may decide to dispose of them. To prevent this from happening, the courts have had recourse to the flexible remedy of injunction. To show how it works, this chapter gives some examples and also analyses the various discussions involved here to give several conclusions based on them.
