Principles governing grant of interlocutory injunction. Section 12 (3) of the Human Rights Act, 1998 makes the likelihood of success at the trial an essential element in the Court's consideration of whether to make an interim order. But in order to achieve the necessary flexibility the degree of likelihood of success at the trial needed to satisfy Sec. 12 (3) must depend on the circumstances. There can be no single, rigid standard governing all applications for interim restraint orders. Rather, on its proper construction the effect of Sec. 12 (3) is that the Court is not to make an interim restraint order unless satisfied the applicant's prospects of success at the trial are sufficiently favourable to justify such an order being made in the particular circumstances of the case. As to what degree of likelihood makes the prospects of success 'sufficiently favourable', the general approach should be that Courts will be exceedingly slow to make interim restraint orders where the applicant has not satisfied the Court, he will probably (more likely than not) succeed at the trial. In general, that should be the threshold an applicant must cross before the Court embarks on exercising the discretion, duly taking into account the relevant jurisprudence on Art. 10 and any countervailing convention rights. But there will be cases where it is necessary for a Court to depart from this general approach and a lesser degree of likelihood will suffice as a prerequisite. Circumstances where this may be so include those mentioned above, where the potential adverse consequences of disclosure are particularly grave, or where a short-lived injunction is needed to enable the Court to hear and give proper consideration to an application for interim relief pending the trial or any relevant appeal.
