Star Gi­nola loses bid for se­crecy

Sunday Sun - - News -

FOR­MER New­cas­tle star David Gi­nola has failed in a bid to have re­porters barred from a pri­vate fam­ily court hear­ing af­ter be­com­ing in­volved in a dis­pute over money with ex-wife Co­ra­line Delpin.

Gi­nola, who played for Tot­ten­ham Hot­spur af­ter New­cas­tle United, told a judge she was analysing pri­vate is­sues which should not be re­vealed in me­dia re­ports.

Jour­nal­ists ar­gued that the name “Gi­nola” had been pub­lished on court list­ings of the case and said some de­tail of the mar­riage break-up had al­ready emerged in me­dia re­ports.

They said there was a pub­lic in­ter­est in al­low­ing some re­port­ing.

Lawyers rep­re­sent­ing Ms Delpin said they were “neu­tral”.

Judge Sarah Gib­bons re­fused to ex­clude re­porters from Wed­nes­day’s hear­ing at the Cen­tral Fam­ily Court in Lon­don.

She said jour­nal­ists could name Mr Gi­nola and his wife and re­port that she was analysing is­sues in a dis­pute about money.
