There are before the court a number of related matters, which form part of the protracted litigation arising from the sinking of the M/T Prestige in 2002. The parties to these proceedings are the London Steam-Ship Owners' Mutual Insurance Association Limited (which I will call 'the Club') and the Kingdom of Spain (which I will call 'Spain').
Specifically, the following matters fall to be resolved by the Court:
(1) The remaining issues and the outcome of the Club's Appeal in Claim No. CL-2019-000518.
(2) Spain's challenges to the First and Second Partial Awards of Sir Peter Gross dated 6 January 2023 and 27 March 2023 under ss. 67, 68 and 69 Arbitration Act 1996 ('AA 1996'), in Claim No. CL-2023-000050.
