Northern Irish have more super injunctions than the English and Welsh
The Justice minister, David Ford, in Northern Ireland has told TUV leader Jim Allister, 4 super injunctions have been issued in its High Court since 2007.
A great quote from Allister:
"The mystery and secrecy surrounding injunctive relief is generally not healthy, nor does it sit comfortably with the transparency expectations of a modern society,"
England and Wales, on the other hand, have only issued 2 since Jan 2010:
There are super injunctions and there are super injunctions. We assume they were put in place to protect vulnerable people, national security or for the benefit of the little people.
