Mawer v Bland
(Chancery Division, Rose J, 12 June 2013)
At a time when B was made bankrupt, he had interests in various overseas companies. Post-bankruptcy, B sought to back-date a transfer of some shares to an associate. On that basis, the registrar acceded to the trustee in bankruptcy's application to suspend discharge, even though more recently B had been more co-operative.
