(2) You are or may be one of the persons who are interested in the Identified Underlying Assets.

(3) On 20 May 2020, Mr Justice Foxton gave directions in relation to how non-parties can assert an interest in the Identified Underlying Assets. You may, by 4pm on 3 July 2020, make an application to be joined to the Claim in order to make a proprietary claim or a claim under the Criminal Justice Act 1988 in relation to the Identified Underlying Assets, or to make any argument in relation to a claim asserted by any other party. Any such application shall be supported by a properly particularised statement of case identifying the relief which is sought or the argument which is sought to be raised.

(4) If you do not make such an application by 4pm on 3 July 2020, you will (i) be bound by orders and judgments made by the Court in relation to the Identified Underlying Assets, (ii) be debarred from contending that you have a proprietary claim or claim under the 1988 Act that takes priority to such claims as are established to the Identified Underlying Assets by persons who make applications by 3 July 2020, and (iii) be debarred from otherwise challenging the Court’s judgments or orders in relation to such claims.

(5) Further information in relation to the Claim (including the statements of case filed by all parties thereto) can be obtained by sending an email to IZO.Litigation@sfo.gov.uk and orbharcus@harcusparker.com.
