Mareva Injunction ('Freezing" Assets)

If a Plaintiff has reasons to prove to the Court that the Defendant is about to remove valuable property or money out of Hong Kong in order to avoid the Plaintiff's claim, the Plaintiff can apply to the court to prohibit him from doing so. This is called a "Mareva Injunction" which means to have the property being 'frozen'. Such application normally takes place without notifying the Defendant i.e. so called ex-parte application.
