In re Times Newspapers Ltd and Another

Courts-Martial Appeal Court

“To be entitled to make any order for anonymity for all or any of a number of defendants in a case in which no applicable statute provided a power justifying such an order, a court had to have regard to the relevant tests identified at common law, namely, whether, absent such an order, the administration of justice would be seriously affected or there was a real and immediate risk to the life of any of the defendants.”
