Howard Jones BS: 'Sir' Philip Green (298* d) RE: BS: 'Sir' Philip Green 27 Oct 18

It doesn't seem to have been widely noticed that this was a temporary injunction, to allow time for the allegations to be properly considered. It would be for the later hearing to decide whether it should remain permanent. Hain's intervention has circumvented the proper legal process, and he is rightly being criticised for this. He also claimed to be revealing the "truth", when the fact is that the allegations have still to be proved true. Green may have shown himself to be a thoroughly nasty piece of work, but he is still entitled to proper legal process.

These allegations would have been made in the course of an employment dispute, not criminal charges, and it is very common for these to be settled by agreement to avoid the cost and inconvenience to both parties of going to an Employment Tribunal. It also brings certainty. However a settlement would be pointless if the complainant could still make their allegations, hence NDAs. If they don't like it, or if the parties can't agree terms, they can take their chance at the tribunal.

NDA's can't be used to prevent events being reported to the proper regulatory bodies or the police.
