CategoryNews Author Steven Kovats QC, Richard Wald Date

On Monday 22 June 2015, Richard Wald and Stephen Kosmin are appearing for the Appellant, and Steven Kovats QC is appearing for the Respondent in a Supreme Court hearing in R (oao Bancoult) v Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs.

The Appellant is appealing the Court of Appeal’s rejection of his challenge to the Government’s decision to ban fishing around the Chagos islands and to establish a Marine Protected Area, albeit the Court of Appeal had ruled that a Wikileak Cable showing a communication between the US London Embassy and the US Government was admissible.
