(2 November 2004; Thorpe, Scott Baker and Wall LJJ; Court of Appeal)  2 FLR 413
A declaration that the interests of the child were not such as to preclude the institution of proceedings for contempt against the father's McKenzie friend was set aside, as it was clear that the contempt proceedings would involve the child giving evidence as a front-line witness, unless his evidence were agreed. However, this was not to set a precedent; no one should think that the mere involvement of a child in contempt proceedings would provide a potential contemnor with freedom from process.
