Idemia France SAS v Decatur Europe Ltd and others

Guarantee – Construction. The underlying dispute between the parties concerned a claim by the first and second defendant companies that the claimant company had deducted discounts when making payments to them under contracts for the provision of goods and services in Bangladesh.

Accordingly, the Commercial Court held, among other things, that the claimant's claim for jurisdiction before the English courts failed.
