In April 2005 EDO MBM applied for a civil injunction restricting protest outside EDO MBM. Campaigners fought against the injuunction in the High Court and, in 2006, EDO’s case collapsed resulting in the lifting of the injunction. Here are some of the original papers from the case.
Interim injunction judgement - On 29th April 2005 Judge Gross granted an interim injunction. Here’s the text of his judgement.
Preliminary Issues Trial judgement – In November 2005 Judge Walker ruled on the part of the defendants defence which related to a defense of ‘prevention of crime’. The issues considered relate to whether there was nexus between the defendants actions and the prevention of war crimes in Iraq and Palestine. David Perry attended as a party in the case on behalf of the Attorney General. EDO MBM denied they sold weapons to Israel.
Final Judgement – Judge Walker’s final order ruling that EDO and their lawyers had abused the process of the court and acted improperly in the case. This judgement lead to the collapse of the injunction and an order for EDO to pay indemnity costs to the defendants (over £35 000 went to individual litigants in person).
