MR JUSTICE BIRSS:
Availability of witness statements for inspection
32.13 - (1) A witness statement which stands as evidence in chief is open to inspection during the course of the trial unless the court otherwise directs.
(2) Any person may ask for a direction that a witness statement is not open to inspection.
(3) The court will not make a direction under paragraph (2) unless it is satisfied that a witness statement should not be open to inspection because of-
(e) the need to protect the interests of any child or protected party.
(4) The court may exclude from inspection words or passages in the statement.
In any such proceedings, the court may, where it appears to be necessary for avoiding a substantial risk of prejudice to the administration of justice in those proceedings or in any other proceedings pending or imminent order that the publication of any report of the proceedings or any part of the proceedings be postponed for such period as the court thinks necessary for that purpose.
a. first any information relating to Children Act proceedings which now exist between Ms Tolstoy and Mr Pugachev;
b. secondly, any information about the infant children themselves, for example where they go to school;
c. third, information about the personal relationship between the children and their parents; and,
d. fourth, information about the breakdown in the relationship between Ms Tolstoy and Mr Pugachev, in particular references to matters which I will not include in this public judgment ("the Particular Matters").
