PCA: the Duzgit Integrity Arbitration Award delivered

The Tribunal constituted under Annex VII to the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea in the matter of the Duzgit Integrity Arbitration has just issued an Award in respect of the dispute between the Republic of Malta and the Republic of São Tomé and Príncipe. The dispute concerns the arrest by São Tomé of a Maltese flagged vessel – the Duzgit Integrity – on 15 March 2013 when it attempted to undertake a ship-to-ship (“STS”) cargo transfer in São Tomé’s archipelagic waters, and the subsequent measures taken by São Tomé in relation to the vessel, its master, cargo, owner and charterer. More information about this case can be found in the PCA’s press release; the Award is available here.
