 CRCICA: One of the Best Arbitration Centres across the African Continent and Elsewhere, Assessment Report mandated by the African Development Bank, April 2014

The African Development Bank (AFDB) has recently posted on its website the Assessment Report of Arbitration Centres in Côte d'Ivoire, Egypt and Mauritius, which was prepared by Dr Werner Jahnel, Partner, LALIVE as mandated by the AFDB to assess various arbitration centres across the African continent. The Report focuses on the following three centres: La Cour Commune de Justice et d'Arbitrage (CCJA) in Côte d'Ivoire, the Cairo Regional Centre for International Commercial Arbitration (CRCICA) in Egypt, and the Mauritius International Arbitration Centre (LCIA-MIAC) in Mauritius. The purpose of the Report is to assess the arbitration centres against the requirement and standards for "international commercial arbitration" according to the Bank's Rules and Procedures for the Procurement of Goods and Works and to examine, among other issues, "the neutral venue requirement" in each of these centres.

The research methodology of the report was double-staged based on desk review of documents and site visits of some of the Centres involved. The Final Report consolidates the findings of the two stages and provides a final assessment of each centre.

 Comparative Commercial Arbitration: Theory and Practice (CCATP):
Second Module: The Arbitral Tribunal, Cairo-Egypt, 8-10 June 2014

The Arbitral Tribunal: the second module of the Comparative Commercial Arbitration: Theory and Practice (CCATP), was held on 8-10 June 2014. In this module, "the Arbitral Tribunal" is studied in depth based on a big number of the most recent international court decisions and institutional regulations. Unlike the traditional format of arbitral tribunal programs, which mainly focuses on the composition of tribunals, the program tackled all aspects related to the tribunal including the appointment of arbitrators, the scope and nature of their mission as well as challenge, removal, resignation and replacement of arbitrators. Considerable attention was also given to the rights, obligations and liabilities of arbitrators.

Reference documents included an unprecedented collection of court judgments, published institutional decisions, analytical articles as well as expert commentaries. Participants have had the chance to role play through four mock cases designed to raise and discuss all top issues related to the composition and functioning of the arbitral tribunal, with special emphasis on conflicts of interests including issue conflicts. Thirty practitioners participated in this module in representation of many sectors of businesses and professions.

 Judicial review of the absence of the award signature by the minority of the arbitral tribunal, 2 April 2014

On April 2, 2014, Prof. Nader M. Ibrahim, LL.D., Arab Academy for Science Technology and Maritime Transport, delivered a lecture on "Judicial Review of the absence of the award signature by the minority of the arbitral tribunal". Prof. Ibrahim analyzed the actual application of Article 43(1) of the Egyptian Arbitration Act No. 27 of 1994, which requires the majority of the arbitral tribunal to provide the reasons for the absence of award signature by the minority. Based on recent Egyptian Cassation Court decisions (namely that of: Feb. 9, 2010 and June 11, 2012), the lecturer reached the conclusion that the Egyptian Cassation Court follows an attenuated line of interpretation that focuses on the reason underpinning the legal requirement of justifying the minority's refusal to sign the award, and which the Court sums up in the safeguard of the deliberations, leading to actual non-requirement of the said justification as long as deliberations between all members of the Tribunal have taken place. This line of case-law is supportive to arbitration, but is considered too much liberal by the lecturer, who calls upon the courts of Appeal and Cassation to require actual explanation for the absence of the signature by the minority, especially as to whether the minority was given the opportunity to participate in the deliberations, as well as the valid formation of the tribunal at the time of the award making.

The lecture was attended by members of law firms, mass media sector, investment and construction companies, international organizations, state courts, administrative prosecution, industrial corporations and holding companies.

 Applicable Law in Petroleum Arbitrations, 7 May 2014

On May 7, 2014, in a biographical narrative structure of his lecture entitled "Applicable Law in Petroleum Arbitration", Prof. Dr. Ahmed S. EL KOSHERI, Senior Partner of Kosheri, Rashed and Riad Law Firm and Chairman of CRCICA's Advisory Committee, shared with the audience his sixty-year record of experiences in tackling petroleum-related arbitrations. In a chronological fashion, the lecture arrayed the significant developments in oil concession law with highlights on the various legal and political circumstances affecting such developments over decades.

He stressed that the dominating feature of international petroleum contracts, in the past, was a lack of balance between the rights and obligations of host states and foreign petroleum companies, which, in many cases, involved an obvious negligence of national law systems. Concession agreements had been unilateral in nature in that they benefited mainly the oil companies and not the oil wealth holder. However, following a number of political changes and OPEC critical decisions, the practical scene started to change striking a relative balance between rights and obligations. One of the most significant model examples, in this concern, was the Government of Kuwait versus Aminoil Company Case after Kuwait's nationalization of the company in 1978 and the termination of its petroleum concession. As a counsel for the Kuwaiti Government, Prof. Dr. El Kosheri succeeded in convincing the tribunal with the legitimacy of the nationalization in the light of international law despite counter-calls to internationalize the case. The award supports the legitimacy of the nationalization against reasonable compensations. According to the lecturer, the legal principles enshrined in the Kuwait/Aminoil award provided a model for many tribunals to follow.
