Publication about proceedings
8.17 Section 98 of the ADGM Courts, Civil Evidence, Judgements, Enforcement and Judicial Appointments Regulations 2015, provide that matters will be heard in public unless otherwise directed by the ADGM Courts. As publicity about proceedings is subject to such directions, the Registration Authority generally does not make any public statement about the commencement of proceedings until the ADGM Courts has given directions about publicity.
8.18 The Registration Authority’s general policy is to make public statements about the outcome of enforcement proceedings in the ADGM Courts, unless the ADGM Courts directs otherwise. However, the Registration Authority retains discretion to not publicise the outcome of proceedings, or to not do so immediately, where it considers appropriate, such as where publication would not be in the public interest or be prejudicial to the interests of clients and customers.
