Shipping – Charterparty. The Commercial Court held that the defendant company was liable to pay the claimant company under a guarantee in a charterparty. The court held that the charterparty had not been procured by bribery on the part of the claimant's general manager in China and torture could not be ruled out as a reason for confessions made by the general manager. Therefore, the charterparty was enforceable.
