CASE OF THE WEEK

CONTEMPT OF COURT – THE LAW, PROCEDURE AND NEED FOR LAW REFORM
By M.M Murungi

Republic v County Council of Nakuru ex parte Edward Alera t/a Genesis Reliable Equipment & 3 others [2011] eKLR
High Court at Nakuru
Justice W. Ouko
September 23, 2011

The High Court (W. Ouko, J – Nakuru) has decried the unsatisfactory state of the substantive and procedural law of contempt of court describing it as ‘unacceptable’ that courts in Kenya must make reference to the laws of England in dealing with matters of contempt of court.

In deciding an application for committal for contempt of court brought against the Nakuru County Council, the High Court referred to the UK Contempt of Court Act, 1981 which with recent amendments remains the substantive law of contempt of court in England. The court observed that the procedure continues to be that provided for under order 52 of the Rules of the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom (which are gradually being replaced with the Civil Procedure Rules following the reforms recommended by The Lord Woolf Committee).

The rules require that leave (now called permission) should be obtained before the application is made and notice of the application for permission must be given to the state no later than the preceding day. The court proceeded to set out the procedure to be followed after permission has been obtained.

The applicants were tenants of the respondent, a municipal authority. They filed an application for leave to bring judicial review proceedings challenging the respondent’s decision to terminate its tenancy agreement with them and asking the court to restrain the respondent from evicting them or attaching their property. The High Court granted the applicants leave and ordered a stay of any further action by the respondent against them pending the proceedings.

The applicants later filed a second application asking that the respondent’s clerk and the treasurer be committed to civil jail for contempt of court citing certain actions by the respondent which it was argued amounted to a disobedience of the stay order. This application was filed through a notice of motion without an application for leave.

The Court held as follows:
The substantive application for judicial review had no merit. The claim failed and it would be dismissed.

The basis of the law of contempt of court in Kenya are sections 5(1) of the Judicature Act (Cap. 8) and section 63 of the Civil Procedure Act (Cap. 21). However, both laws do not prescribe the procedure for applications for contempt of court. Local courts are guided by the powers and the procedure of the High Court of Justice in England.

The Contempt of Court Act, 1981 [UK] with recent amendments remains the substantive law of contempt of court in England. Similarly, the procedure continues to be that provided for under order 52 of the Rules of the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom (which are being gradually replaced with the Civil Procedure Rules following the reforms recommended by The Lord Woolf Committee).

Rules on contempt of court are still retained in the rules of the [UK] Supreme Court in Schedule 1 of the Civil Procedure Rules. The rules require that leave (called permission) should be obtained before the application is made; and the application must be accompanied by a statement setting out:

The name and description of the applicant
The name, description and address of the contemnor, and
The grounds upon which the contemnor’s committal is sought;
The application for committal must also be accompanied by an affidavit verifying the facts relied on.

The applicant must give notice of the application for permission not later than the preceding day to the Crown Office (equivalent of the Attorney General’s Chambers – the State Law Office in the case of Kenya).

After permission, the procedure is as follows:
Unless the claim is made within 14 days after permission is granted, the permission shall lapse.

The substantive application, accompanied by a copy of the statement and affidavit in support of the application for permission must be served personally on the contemnor unless the court has dispensed with service or if it or he thinks tit just to do so.
The High Court or Court of Appeal may of its own motion make an order of committal against a person guilty of contempt of court.

As a general rule, the court hearing an application for an order of committal must do so in public, except where the application relates to adoption, guardianship, custody and maintenance of an infant, or where proceedings relate to a person suffering from a mental disorder, or where it appears to the court that in the interest of justice or for reasons of national security the application should be heard in private.

No grounds shall be relied on at the hearing of an application for contempt, except those set out in the statement, or in the claim form or application notice.
If the contemnor wishes to give oral evidence on his own behalf, he shall be entitled to do so.

The applicant’s application did not comply with any of these rules.
(Per Ouko J): “…the state of the law of contempt of court in this country is most unsatisfactory. It is unacceptable today that courts in Kenya must make reference to the laws of England in dealing with matters of contempt of court”.
