Supreme Court, 4th March 2015
‘The Supreme Court last week rejected the Home Office’s attempt to keep Jamaica on the list of safe countries for asylum claims despite an estimated 10% of the population in Jamaica being subject to persecution because they are gay. This blow to the Home Office came the same week that the case of Aderonke Apata reached court again, leading to some startling submissions on sexuality being made to the court on behalf of the Home Office.’

“After-the-event insurance premiums and success fees under conditional fee agreements entered into with English counsel and solicitors were not recoverable as costs by a successful party in an appeal to the Privy Council from Jamaica whose domestic law did not permit conditional fee agreements or allow for a successful party’s expenditure on after-the-event premiums to be an allowable disbursement.”
The Times, 10th July 2009
“Success fees under conditional fee agreements, and premiums paid on ‘after the event’ (‘ATE’) insurance cover were not recoverable as costs by a successful party in an appeal to the Privy Council from Jamaica whose domestic law did not allow conditional fee agreements or permit expenditure on ATE premiums to be an allowable disbursement.”
