This chapter discusses various different cases to introduce the procedure known as the mareva injunction. All the other legal systems of the world have a similar procedure. It is called in civil law saisie conservatoire. It was welcomed in the City of London and has proved extremely beneficial. It enables a creditor in a proper case to stop his debtor from parting with his assets pending trial. If it appears that the debt is due and owing — and there is a danger that the debtor may dispose of his assets so as to defeat it before judgment — the court has jurisdiction in a proper case to grant an interlocutory injunction so as to prevent him disposing of those assets. It seems that this is a proper case for the exercise of this jurisdiction.
