    Received an email from OA regarding printing my name in the daily newspaper in regards to payment of monies to creditors. I am out of bankruptcy since July 2016. Have they the right to print my name as I am out of bankruptcy.

    Whilst debtors are now automatically discharged from bankruptcy in 12 months, the commercial reality is that it can take years for the OA to realise assets. If the OA is going to pay a dividend, he would ordinarily place adverts seeking creditors' claims. In short, there is no privacy entitlement to such adverts.
