*Malicorp Ltd v Government of the Arab Republic of Egypt and others

Arbitration – Award. The claimant, an English company entered into a contract with the first defendant Government of Egypt for the design and construction of a new airport in Egypt. A dispute arose and the claimant brought arbitration proceedings in Egypt. An award and later, an enforcement order, were granted in favour of claimant. The first defendant applied, pursuant to s 101(2) Arbitration Act 1996, to set aside the enforcement order. The Commercial Court ordered that the enforcement order had to be set aside where the award had been set aside by a Court of Appeal decision in Cairo and where the award granted remedies on a basis which had never been pleaded nor argued.
