Huawei faces UK sales ban if it doesn't cough up 4G patent tithes

from the article:

The judgment also set FRAND licensing rates between Huawei and Unwired for the rest of the world.

What authority does a UK-based judge have to either:

1) rule on the rates applicable outside the jurisdiction of UK courts;

2) apply rates of a UK patent outside its area of effect - the UK;

3) set rates for patents not issued by the UK's patent issuing authority?

Unless the parties jointly agreed to allow the judge to rule on those matters?
