The family lived in Dubai but when the parents separated the mother was prevented from removing the two children from the jurisdiction. The mother issued proceedings in England and during which an order for costs was made. The English court held that the Dubai courts were best placed to determine the substantive matters. The question now arose whether the English court retained jurisdiction.
