*Lorand Shipping Limited v Davof Trading ( Africa) B.V

Arbitration – Tribunal. The claimant owners of a vessel commenced proceedings against the defendant charterer following the vessel suffering damage. The tribunal found for the owners, but they subsequently made an application under s 68 of the Arbitration Act 1996, seeking declaratory relief and seeking to have certain disputes referred back to the tribunal. The Commercial Court, in allowing the application, held that the tribunal had erred and that the disputes in question would be remitted.
