41. Powers of the Court of First Instance with respect to injunctions and receivers

(1) The Court of First Instance may by order (whether interim or final) grant an injunction or appoint a receiver in all cases in which it appears to the Court to be just and convenient to do so.
(2) Any such order may be made either unconditionally or on such terms and conditions as the Court thinks just.
(3) The power of the Court of First Instance under subsection (1) to grant an interim injunction restraining a party to any proceedings from removing from the jurisdiction of the Court of First Instance or the Emirate, or otherwise dealing with, assets located within that jurisdiction or the Emirate shall be exercisable in cases where that party is, as well as in cases where he is not, domiciled, resident or present within that jurisdiction.
(4) The power of the Court of First Instance to appoint a receiver by way of equitable execution shall operate in relation to all legal estates and interests in real property; and that power —
(a) may be exercised in relation to an estate or interest in real property whether or not a charge has been imposed on that real property under section 115 (charging orders) for the purpose of enforcing the judgment, order or award in question; and
(b) shall be in addition to, and not in derogation of any power of any Court to appoint a receiver in proceedings for enforcing such a charge.
(5) Where an order under section 115 imposing a charge for the purpose of enforcing a judgment, order or award has been, or has the effect as if, registered under section 96 of the Real Property Regulations 2015, section 98(1) of those Regulations shall not apply to an order appointing a receiver made either —
(a) in proceedings for enforcing the charge; or
(b) by way of equitable execution of the judgment, order or award or, as the case may be, of so much of it as requires payment of moneys secured by the charge.
