Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! The Barclays (LSE: BARC) share price has fallen a staggering 25% year-to-date, underperforming the FTSE 100 by around 10%.After this decline, the stock looks attractive as a value investment. But as the global economic outlook remains uncertain, is now really a good time to buy the Barclays share price? 5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Barclays share price Between the beginning of the year and the middle of March, the Barclays share price slumped 50%. Investors feared that lockdowns, designed to try and contain the coronavirus outbreak, would cripple the global economy.The outlook has improved steadily since the stock bottomed in the middle of March. Economic activity has started to pick up again, and it doesn’t look as if any major bank will collapse, as they did in the financial crisis more than a decade ago.Central banks around the world have been pouring money into the global financial system, which has also helped reassure investors that the worst is over. However, lower interest rates are also making it harder for banks to earn a profit. Rising loan losses are also eating away at groups’ bottom lines. This is likely to mean the Barclays share price will struggle to recover to pre-coronavirus crisis levels in the short term. This doesn’t mean Barclays will never be able to return to pre-crisis levels of profitability. The bank is one of the world’s largest financial institutions. As a result, it should see its bottom line grow as world trade recovers.The lender has also recently seen a substantial increase in profits from its financial markets division. Barclays is one of the few large banks that still operates a large investment bank. This provides diversification as well as giving it a competitive advantage over peers. So, while the group might struggle to return to pre-crisis levels of profitability of the next year or two, the Barclays share price seems to be well-positioned to benefit from global economic growth over the long run. A margin of safetyWith the Barclays share price down by more than a quarter since the beginning of the year, it appears to offer a wide margin of safety at current levels.Research shows that investors who buy shares with a wide margin of safety tend to outperform over the long term. The margin of safety acts as a cushion between the share price and further fundamental pain, which Barclays may suffer if the coronavirus crisis continues into 2021. Nevertheless, at this stage, it’s impossible to tell how long the crisis will last. As noted above, the group has solid long-term growth potential.Therefore, it may make sense to buy the shares when they look to offer value, rather than trying to predict the future. As such, now may be a good time to buy the Barclays share price as part of a diversified portfolio.

Can the French clubs rule in Europe?

first_img Top trumps: Castres’ Rory Kockott is the top point scorer in the Top14By Gavin MortimerWITH THE 2012-13 Heineken Cup starting on Friday how healthy are the French clubs ahead of the opening round? Runaway Top 14 leaders Toulon play Montpellier on Sunday evening but elsewhere the best of Britain and Ireland face France’s finest.Ulster v CASTRES, pool 4Currently sixth in the Top 14, Castres limbered up for the Heineken Cup trip to Belfast with an impressive 16-13 defeat of Clermont last weekend in which their South African scrum-half Rory Kockott scored 11 points to extend his lead as the league’s top points scorer this season. Depressingly, however, there are signs suggesting Castres have already decided to focus their limited resources on the domestic league. Three of last week’s back division are rested for the trip to Ulster including fly-half Rémi Talès.RACING METRO v Munster, pool 1Beaten in their last two matches and lying seventh in the table, Racing Metro are once more failing to live up to their reputation. Last week’s home defeat to Montpellier was particularly painful and led coach Gonzalo Quesada to answer questions about his future. One ray of hope for Racing lies in new recruit Olly Barkley. The former Bath fly-half made his first appearance for his new club as a second-half sub and could well start on Saturday at the Stade de France. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Castres’ South African number 9 Rory Kockott passes the ball during the French Top 14 rugby union match Montpellier vs Castres on September 29, 2012 at the Yves du Manoir stadium in Montpellier, southwestern France. AFP PHOTO / PASCAL GUYOT (Photo credit should read PASCAL GUYOT/AFP/GettyImages) CLERMONT v Scarlets, pool 5Clermont suffered only their second reverse of the season last week away at Castres, a defeat that leaves them third in the Top 14. Unbeaten at home for three years, Clermont have nonetheless failed to dominate teams on their home patch the way they once did. Racing lost by a solitary point and Stade Francais were edged out a fortnight ago by a 79th minute drop goal from Brock James. Coach Vern Cotter knows they’ll have to improve against the Scarlets, saying this week: “They’re a team of internationals crammed with talent. After their successful start to the season they’re going to arrive full of confidence.”Harlequins  v BIARRITZ, pool 3Biarritz are in crisis. Without a win in their last four matches, Biarritz were beaten at home by Bayonne in the Basque derby a fortnight ago and last week suffered a humiliating 36-9 mauling at the hands of Toulon. If that wasn’t depressing enough, the latest medical bulletin on talismanic No8 Imanol Harinordoquy announced he’s still some way off playing his first match of the season. With experienced internationals Jerome Thion and Dimitri Yachvili also out injured, Biarritz travel to London low on morale. “We’re going to play in another tournament and we have to find the positive things to help us regroup,” Serge Milhas after the Toulon hammering. TOULOUSE v Leicester, pool 2 On the surface Toulouse go into the Heineken Cup bang on form. The reigning French champions have won their last three matches, including a 32-9 defeat of Toulon a fortnight ago. But that that was a second-string Toulon side and the manner of last week’s 34-32 win over second from bottom Bordeaux-Begles illustrated the weaknesses in this Toulouse squad. Early in the second-half they trailed Bordeaux 29-10 and only a late surge, coupled with an exhausted opposition, saw Toulouse home. Defeats to Biarritz and Perpignan have shown Guy Noves squad is far from infallible and vice-captain Jean Bouilhou knows they will have to up their game against Leicester. Speaking in the aftermath of the win against Bordeaux he said: “If we play [against Leicester] the way we did tonight then it’s going to be very, very unpleasant. We’ve been warned.”last_img read more

Former Apopka City Administrator Named in Hit-and-Run Lawsuit

first_img May 22, 2016 at 5:42 am Richard Anderson, the former City Administrator and current consultant/lobbyist for The City of Apopka, is being sued by Michael Falcon, the victim of a hit-and-run crash on April 5, 2016. In the complaint filed in the 5th Judicial Circuit Court for Lake County on April 19th, Falcon alleges that Anderson was the owner of the truck that collided with his car, and was also the driver of the vehicle.The Florida Highway Patrol confirmed that Anderson is a person of interest in that hit-and-run crash last month, which injured Falcon to the extent that he was airlifted to the Orlando Regional Medical Center.“The only person of interest in this hit-and-run investigation is the owner of the truck,” said Sergeant Kim Montes, Public Affairs Officer for The Florida Highway Patrol.The FHP Motor Vehicle Accident Report states Anderson’s truck was going the wrong way at 1:30 a.m. on April 5th and crashed into Falcon’s car.The FHP said it’s trying to identify who was behind the wheel of Anderson’s black Dodge Ram truck when it crashed head-on into Falcon’s gray Toyota Corolla in Lake County road last month.In FHP’s report, witnesses who stopped at the scene said the truck’s driver “…possibly could have been a male with white hair and glasses who was seen walking around the crash scene talking on a cellphone and then left in an unknown direction.”Montes went on to say that Anderson was contacted about the incident and did not provide information as to who was driving the vehicle at the time of the hit-and-run. The investigation remains open according to Montes.Anderson’s Dodge Ram was left behind at the crash scene.Falcon and his wife are suing Anderson, accusing him of being behind the wheel.The lawsuit states:Anderson was the owner of a 2014 Dodge Ram. On April 5th, 2016, at or about 1:30 a.m., while operating the subject vehicle, Anderson was traveling on State Road 46, in Lake County, Florida. At or about that same time and place, Michael Falcon was operating a 2007 Toyota Corolla traveling in the opposite direction as Anderson on State Road 46 in Lake County, Florida. Anderson veered into Falcon’s lane of travel, striking his vehicle head-on at a high rate of speed.The lawsuit goes on to say that Falcon suffered serious and permanent injuries as a result of the collision, and that Anderson negligently operated or maintained his vehicle so that it collided with Falcon’s, and as a direct and proximate result of the negligence, Falcon suffered bodily injury, and resulting pain and suffering, disability, disfigurement, mental anguish, loss of capacity for the enjoyment of life, expense of hospitalization, medical nursing care and treatment, loss of earnings, loss of ability to earn money, and aggravation of a previously existing condition. The losses are permanent or continuing and plaintiff will suffer the losses in the future. Bill Frodl Please enter your comment!

The project lay-out, determined by the topographical orientation and concern for privacy, is a set of 12.5 x 5 metre pavilions interspersed with voids or courtyards. The programme is organised in the pavilions, and the voids provide access and allow cross-ventilation and light into the interiors.It is a simple building, efficient thanks to its insulation, which expresses the form of its construction in the materiality of its finishes.

Sandra Bakutz faces up to 15 years in prison

first_imgReporters Without Borders protested today against the imprisonment of Austrian journalist Sandra Bakutz of radio Orange 94.0 and the German newspaper Junge Welt, who was arrested on 10 February on her arrival at Atatürk international airport in Istanbul and has been held ever since on a charge of “belonging to an illegal organization.” Bakutz was taken to the Pasakapisi detention centre in Istanbul on 16 February, and was subsequently transferred to the prison in Gebze, a town about 50 km south of Istanbul, where she is now awaiting trial.”We call on the Turkish justice minister to release this Austrian journalist at once,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Her imprisonment, which has so far lasted 18 days, is based on vague suspicions and is not supported by an international arrest warrant.” The press freedom organization added: “The Turkish justice system does not respect articles 9 and 10 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights banning arbitrary detention and guaranteeing the right to a fair and transparent trial, or article 19 guaranteeing freedom of opinion.”Bakutz, who has been involved for several years in defending Turkish political prisoners, was to have attended the trial of 82 activists who were arrested in an international police operation on 1 April 2004 against the DHKP-C (Revolutionary People’s Liberation Party/Front), a far-left movement classified as a terrorist organization by the United States and the European Union.She was detained as soon as she disembarked from her flight from Vienna. The next day she was brought before the 12th Court for Heavy Penalties to be told the reason for her arrest, namely a September 2001 arrest warrant issued by the 2nd State Security Court (which was responsible at that time for trying Turkish political prisoners and which no longer exists, having been replaced by the Court for Heavy Penalties). The illegal organization of which she is alleged to be member is the DHKP-C. Although Bakutz went to Turkey as part of a delegation arranged by the International Platform against Isolation (IPAI), an international organization that defends Turkish political prisoners, she was to have covered the trial of the 82 activists as a journalist and was to have produced a report for Radio Orange 94.0. Her alleged membership of DHKP-C is in no way proven.Bakutz’s Austrian lawyer, Gabriele Vana-Kowarzik, claims that the Turkish authorities used a “spurious pretext” – “membership of an illegal organization”. It is just to prevent a journalist from investigating a controversial aspect of the human rights situation in Turkey at a time when it is trying to join the European Union.Since her transfer on 16 February to Gebze prison, Bakutz has had her appearance before a judge postponed twice. An official explanation for this extended “police custody” is cruelly lacking. The Austrian ambassador and Austrian consul general in Istanbul went to Gebze prison yesterday morning but only the consul general was allowed to see her. She shares her cell with 10 other political prisoners and is not allowed to make telephone calls or have any other contact with the outside world.

Her case is being handled by the special heavy penalties court and she has three Turkish lawyers, Selçuk Kozaçagli, Özgür Yilmaz and Betül Vangölü.

Government tries to make five foreign publications censor themselves

first_img Follow the news on Singapore October 15, 2020 Find out more Organisation Coronavirus: State measures must not allow surveillance of journalists and their sources SingaporeAsia – Pacific RSF_en News to go further RSF’s denounces Singapore’s disregard of press freedom ahead of its Universal Periodic Review SingaporeAsia – Pacific Receive email alertscenter_img News News News Help by sharing this information Singaporean website prosecuted over election coverage October 2, 2020 Find out more April 10, 2020 Find out more Reporters Without Borders today condemned the Singapore government for putting pressure on on the Far Eastern Economic Review and four other foreign publications to censor themselves. “The authorities are looking for effective ways, including fear of prosecution and heavy fines, to intimidate these publications into censoring themselves,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said. “This is the latest threat against the foreign media, which are the only means of reporting independently on political and economic events in the country since the local press is controlled by the government.”The information, communications and arts ministry gave the monthly Far Eastern Economic Review until 11 September to comply with section 23 of the Newspapers and Printing Presses Act. The magazine has been registered as a foreign publication since it criticised the government’s domestic policy in 1987 but had an exemption from some legal requirements which has now been cancelled. It must have a legal representative in the country by the ministry’s deadline and pay a deposit of 200,000 Singapore dollars (100,000 euros). For other foreign publications, the International Herald Tribune, Time magazine, the Financial Times and Newsweek, have been ordered to do the same when their licences come up for renewal.This crackdown follows an interview in the Far Eastern Economic Review with opposition leader Chee Soon Juan, who the magazine called a national “martyr” because of the many lawsuits against him.The ministry said the press law “serves to reinforce the government’s consistent position that it is a privilege, and not a right, for foreign newspapers to circulate in Singapore” and that foreign media should simply “observe the local scene and not interfere in the domestic politics of Singapore.”The Far Eastern Economic Review, the International Herald Tribune, the Asian Wall Street Journal and The Economist were heavily fined in 2004 after they ran articles considered “hostile” or “libellous” by the government. As well as paying a fine of 200,000 euros, The Economist had to apologise for an article criticising the appointment of the prime minister’s wife as head of a large financial institution. Reporters Without Borders ranked Singapore 140th out of 167 countries in its 2005 worldwide press freedom index.

And what we’ve witnessed from the current sheriff is someone that when someone disagrees with him, we see nothing but utter disdain and contempt,” Vera said as he announced his candidacy this morning in Grand Park, surrounded by his family.Villanueva did not immediately comment on the announcement.Vera has risen through the ranks of the LASD, serving at the Men’s Central Jail, the Lynwood, Lennox, Compton, Century and South Los Angeles stations, the Detective Division s Cargo Theft Criminal Apprehension Team, as an executive aide in the Office of the Sheriff, in the Reserve Forces Bureauand the Communications and Fleet Management Bureau.He was promoted to the rank of chief in December 2018, overseeing the department’s Central Patrol Division. In January, he transferred to the Technology & Support Division, where he oversees the Scientific Services, Data Systems, Records & Identification and Communications & Fleet Management Bureaus.Vera is a former U.S. Marine. He and Villanueva have worked closely together in the past, when both were sergeants at the Lennox Station in the early 2000s. Vera also consulted on Villanueva’s campaign for sheriff in 2018, and praised his aptitude shortly after that election.“There will be a learning curve. But this is a man with a Ph.D. He is no dummy,” Vera told the Los Angeles Times.

In a very significant development, on 29th April, 2020, the England and Wales (E & W) Court of Appeal in Enka Insaat Ve Sanayi A.S. Vs OOO “Insurance Company Chubb[3] (Enka’s case), clarified the “three stage test”, which was authoritatively laid down earlier by the E & W Court of Appeal, in Sulamerica Cia Nacional De Seguros S.A. V. Enesa Engenharia S.A[4] (Sulamérica’s Case) for determining the proper law of arbitration agreement. The judgement in Enka’s Case brings back the dominant influence of the “seat” of arbitration in determining the proper law of arbitration agreement and therefore makes for a very compelling reading. Lord Justice Popplewell, who authored the judgement, very candidly states “…time has come to seek to impose some order and clarity on this area of the law, in particular as to the relative significance to be attached to the main contract law on the one hand, and the curial law of the arbitration agreement on the other, in seeking to determine the AA (arbitration agreement) law. The current state of the authorities does no credit to English commercial law which seeks to serve the business community by providing certainty.” In Enka’s Case, the claimant (“Enka”) is a Turkish company carrying on an international construction and engineering business based in Turkey but with a substantial presence and history of operations in Russia. Enka participated in building the Berezovskaya power plant in Russia as a sub-contractor for design and construction. The first defendant (“Chubb Russia”) is a Russian company and part of the well-known Chubb insurance group. Chubb Russia (subrogee), commenced proceedings against Enka in the Moscow Arbitrazh Court, seeking damages in relation to a massive fire in February 2016 at the Berezovskaya power plant in Russia. Enka issued the Arbitration Claim Form in the Commercial Court in London seeking a declaration that Chubb Russia was bound by the arbitration agreement in clause 50 of the contract and that the arbitration agreement applied to the Moscow Claim. Further, Enka sought an injunction restraining Chubb Russia from continuing the Russian Proceedings. The Commercial Court rejected the Arbitration Claim Form which led to Enka prefer an appeal before the E & W Court of Appeal. The Court of Appeal in Enka’s Case was grappling with the arbitration agreement contained in clause 50 of the contract, which did not provide for an express law governing the arbitration agreement but stipulated that “the place of arbitration shall be London, England” and that the “Dispute shall be finally settled under the Rules of Arbitration of the International Chamber of Commerce”. The contract was entirely to be performed in Russia. The governing law of the contract is Russian law, not by express choice but accepted to be an implied choice by the parties based on a concession made by Enka. The Court of Appeal took a review of the earlier decision in Sulamerica’s Case (Supra) wherein the “three stage test” was authoritatively laid down as the English conflict of laws rule to determine the proper law of arbitration agreement. In Sulamerica’s Case, Moore Bick LJ had observed that as a matter of principle the three stages namely, (i) is there an express choice of law? (ii) if not, is there an implied choice of law? (iii) if not, with what system of law does the arbitration agreement have its closest and most real connection?, ought to be embarked on separately and in that order but that in practice stage (ii) often merges into stage (iii) because identification of the system of law with which the contract has its closest and most real connection is likely to be an important factor in whether the parties have made an implied choice of proper law. Moore Bick LJ held that a search for an implied choice of proper law to govern the arbitration agreement at the second stage is likely to lead to the conclusion that the parties intended the arbitration agreement to be governed by the same system of law as the substantive contract, unless there are other factors present which point to a different conclusion. Moore Bick LJ deviated from the principle famously articulated by Longmore LJ in C v D[5] that an agreement to arbitrate will normally have a closer and more real connection with the place where the parties have chosen to arbitrate than with the place of the law of the underlying contract in cases where the parties have deliberately chosen to arbitrate in one place disputes which have arisen under a contract governed by the law of another place. Pertinently, Longmore’s principle was later reaffirmed by Cooke J in Shashoua v Sharma[6] and in the judgment of the Court in the first instance[7] under appeal in Sulamerica’s Case. In Sulamerica’s Case, Moore Bick LJ held the above quoted principle of Longmore LJ to be obiter. In Enka’s Case, Popplewell LJ first discussed the role of the court of ‘seat’ and underscored the importance of curial court’s jurisdiction to grant an anti-suit injunction by holding that if the curial court cedes the question to a foreign court, when asked to protect the integrity of an arbitration agreement by anti-suit relief, there arises a risk of parallel proceedings and inconsistent decisions. He held that by the choice of English seat, the parties agreed that the English court is an appropriate court to exercise the power to grant an anti-suit injunction. Having decided the issue of the role of ‘seat’ in determining the curial law and curial courts, Popplewell LJ than turns to the issue regarding the determination of the proper law of arbitration agreement or Arbitration Agreement (AA) Law. Popplewell LJ held that where the AA law question can be answered at the first stage, namely whether there is an express choice of the AA law, no conceptual difficulty arises. On the second test of implied choice of AA law, Popplewell LJ held that where there is an express choice of law in the main contract it may amount to an express choice of the AA law. Whether it does so will be a matter of construction of the whole contract, including the arbitration agreement, applying the principles of construction of the main contract law, if different from English law. It is not a conclusion which will follow in all cases, or indeed the majority of cases, in which there is an express choice of main contract law but only in the minority of such cases where the language and circumstances of the case demonstrate that the main contract choice is properly to be construed as being an express choice of AA law. [para 90 and 105]. As a case in point, he cited the recent decision (2nd January,2020) of E & W Court of Appeal in Kabab-Ji SAL (Lebanon) v Kout Food Group (Kuwait)[8]. He held that in Kabab-Ji’s Case, it was unnecessary for the court to grapple with the principles to be applied in the absence of express choice of AA law. Popplewell LJ than observes that in all other cases, the general rule should be that the AA law is the curial law, as a matter of implied choice, subject only to any particular features of the case demonstrating powerful reasons to the contrary. He cites three reasons for it. First, he cites the doctrine of separability of the arbitration agreement recognised in section 7 of the Arbitration Act 1996 and re-emphasised by the House of Lords in Fiona Trust v Privalov[9]. Second, he points out that the overlap between the scope of the curial law and that of the AA law strongly suggests that they should usually be the same. Third, he regarded the curial law as a matter of implied choice at stage (ii) of the AA law inquiry, rather than by application of the closest and most real connection test at stage (iii). He observed that curial law is a matter of choice, which comes with the express choice of seat and given the connection and overlap between the scope of the curial jurisdiction and the scope of the AA law, it seems natural to regard a choice of the former as a choice of the latter, rather than merely the latter being the system of law with which the arbitration agreement has its closest and most real connection. Having found that the proper law of AA is the English Law, the Court of Appeal finally held that the parties intended to apply the wider approach to what amounts to a dispute falling within the clause 50 which is required by English law as explained in Fiona Trust (Supra), rather than the narrower interpretation which it is suggested is required by Russian Law. Consequently, it was held that Moscow Claim was brought and pursued by Chubb Russia in breach of the agreement to arbitrate in clause 50.1 of the Contract. Author’s Conclusion: In XL Insurance Ltd v Owens Corning[10], Toulson J commented that “it is a general principle of English Private International Law that it is for the parties to choose the law which is to govern the their agreement to arbitrate and the arbitration proceedings and that English Law will respect their choice”. Under the English Arbitration Act, 1996, subject to the mandatory provisions as required by s.4(1) read with schedule 1, s.4(5) enables the parties to agree on a law other than the law of England and Wales or Northern Ireland to apply to the arbitration agreement of the English Act, 1996. S.4(4) states it is immaterial whether or not the law applicable to the parties’ agreement is the law of England and Wales or, as the case may be, Northern Ireland. The non-mandatory provisions apply by virtue of the choice of seat in the absence of agreement to the contrary as per s. 4(2). S.4(1) and Schedule 1 precludes parties from contracting out of the basic framework of the English Act, 1996. The scope of applying foreign law (s) to govern the arbitration agreement through agreement between the parties by substituting the non-mandatory provisions of English Act, 1996 to decide on issues like substantive validity, non-arbitrability, formal validity, capacity and authority is therefore left very wide. To give an illustration, the requirement of arbitration agreement to be in writing under s.5 of the English Arbitration Act, 1996 is a non-mandatory provision. Consequently therefore, the courts in England have travelled back and forth to determine the implied proper law of arbitration agreement. The author is of the opinion that the judgment in Enka’s Case is more consistent with the principle of separability of the arbitration agreement from the main contract. Even if arbitration agreements are often regarded as “midnight clauses”, parties are generally aware of the distinct and different purpose behind the main contract (clauses) on one hand and the arbitration agreement (clause) on the other. That is true irrespective of whether the arbitration agreement is forming part of the main contract or it exists as a free standing agreement. It is more reasonable to construe the arbitration agreement taking the internal indicia into consideration before looking outwards for guidance. ‘Seat’, which is intrinsic to international commercial arbitration, ought to be given therefore more importance than the law of contract in determining the law of arbitration agreement. The idea of a dispute resolution clause is to resolve the disputes in the main contract speedily and not get jammed with resolving disputes arising out of the arbitration agreement itself. Adopting a foreign law to govern the arbitration agreement may involve taking expert evidence for its correct appreciation, which may unnecessarily make the dispute resolution clause itself more cumbersome and expensive. In XL Insurance Ltd v Owens Corning[11], Toulson J very had correctly noticed that ” Arbitration Law is all about a particular method of resolving dispute” and that “Its substance and processes are closely intertwined”. Adding further, he commented that there are “various provisions” in the English Arbitration Act, 1996 “which could not readily be separated into boxes labelled substantive arbitration law or procedural law because that would be an artificial division”. Now, an interpretation by an arbitral tribunal on a point of foreign law is considered to be a finding of fact even though it may be erroneous, as ‘law’ does not include foreign law under s.82(1) and consequently not appealable under s.69 of the English Act, 1996. This may lead to more serious complications. While it may appear at first blush that the parties understood the law of contract to apply as the implied choice of proper law of arbitration over the curial law, however, this assumption may not be correct. It is only in rare circumstances that businessmen, despite knowing the practical difficulties associated with having inconsistent curial and proper law of arbitration, would agree on a foreign law to apply as the proper law of arbitration agreement, and if they do so, there is no reason why they would not make it explicit. In India, however, the Arbitration and Conciliation Act, 1996 has adopted a more straightjacket principle. The controversy around the meaning of section 2(2) of the Act, 1996 now stands settled by 5 Judges in BALCO’s Case[12], where the Court has adopted a ‘seat’ centric approach. The above quoted principle of law laid down by Longmore LJ in C v D[13], later reinforced by Cooke J in Shashoua v Sharma[14] and in the judgment under appeal[15] in Sulamerica’s Case has found its unqualified acceptance in Indian arbitration jurisprudence. Once the juridical ‘seat’ is found to be in India, Part I of the Arbitration and Conciliation Act, 1996 would compulsorily apply. Part I contains both derogable and non- derogable provisions. The scheme of Part I shows that the procedural law provisions relating to internal conduct of the arbitration by the Tribunal are mostly derogable, but those relating substantive arbitration law issues connected to the arbitration agreement would fall in the category of non-derogable provisions under the Indian Law, from which the parties cannot deviate, once they agree the ‘seat’ to be in India. To illustrate the point, s.7 of Indian Arbitration and Conciliation Act, 1996, being a non-derogable provision, would mandatorily apply if ‘seat’ is in India and the parties have no choice to override or exclude the same by an agreement. It is worth mentioning here that in a recent development (27th December, 2019), the Singapore Court of Appeal in BNA v BNB and another[16] endorsed the “three stage test” approach taken in Sulamérica’s Case. The uncertainty over the legal position in identifying the juridical “seat” or the “proper law of arbitration” can result in a great deal of time and financial resources being wasted litigating on issues, which have no bearing on the merits of the disputes arising under the main contract. Likewise, lack of a uniform approach across different jurisdictions towards determining the seat or the applicable governing law of arbitration agreement may take a party by surprise in international commercial arbitrations. It is therefore extremely important that international commercial contracts are drafted carefully and after doing an analysis of the legal framework and interpretation of the applicable laws to avoid wholly unnecessary and avoidable litigations in the future.
