Owners of the Ship 'Al Khattiya' v Owners and/or Demise Charterers of the Ship 'Jag Laadki'

The Admiralty Court held that the factors relied upon by the defendant company in seeking to have the claim heard in the United Arab Emirates were far outweighed by the factors pointing to England as the appropriate forum for the determination of the quantum issues that remained.
