REPORT

FROM THE

APPEAL COMMITTEE

17 May 2007

ORDERED TO REPORT

1. We have met and have considered the application for permission to appeal in the cause

Madarassy (Petitioner) v Nomura International plc (Respondents)

DECISION

2. Permission is refused because the petition does not raise an arguable point of law of general public importance which ought to be considered by the House at this time, bearing in mind that the cause has already been the subject of judicial decision and reviewed on appeal.

The Committee was attended by:

Lord Hope of Craighead
Baroness Hale of Richmond
Lord Brown of Eaton-under-Heywood
