Divisional Court judgment in Unaoil / SFO mutual legal assistance claim

The Divisional Court today handed down judgment in a judicial review challenge to a Letter of Request issued by the SFO to authorities in Monaco in connection with the on-going SFO investigation into Unaoil.

The challenge concerned whether the duty of candour, attaching to an application for a domestic search warrant, is applicable in a modified form to a request for mutual legal assistance by way of a Letter of Request. The Court dismissed the challenge.

A copy of the judgment is available here. Jonathan Hall QC acted for the SFO.
