In ICICI Bank UK plc v Mihir Mehta & Others the Court was asked to determine whether a worldwide freezing injunction could be continued against sibling defendants in respect of a claim under a personal guarantee given by their late father. The estate was subject to Belgian inheritance law under which an heir could accept an estate with its liabilities or reject it, along with the liabilities. The first sibling (D1) had accepted the estate but argued that there was no jurisdiction for the English Court to consider the claim. The other sibling (D3) had rejected the Belgian estate but had inherited shares in an Indian company in respect of which Belgian inheritance law had no application.
