Publication of documents by “The Australian”: DCNS welcomes the decision of the Australian judicial authorities

he Supreme Court of the State of New South Wales (Australia) confirmed today the preliminary decision it had rendered on Monday, August 29, 2016 against “The Australian”. The Australian newspaper, which has already withdrawn, after this first decision, the documents published on its website will provide DCNS with all the documents in its possession and is prohibited from publishing any additional document.

Confidentiality of information and communication is a matter of upmost importance and DCNS welcomes this decision of the court.

In parallel to this action, DCNS filed a complaint against unknown persons for breach of trust, receiving the proceeds of an offence and aiding and abetting before the Paris Public Prosecutor.
