In re Trinity Mirror plc and others [2008] EWCA Crim 50; [2008] WLR (D) 27

“There was no jurisdiction under s 45(4)of the Supreme Court Act 1981 to grant an injunction to restrain the publication of the name of a defendant or the nature of his convictions on the basis that such identification would harm the defendant’s children, who were neither witnesses in the proceedings nor victims of his offences, since such an order was not incidental to the defendant’s trial, conviction and sentence.”
