In this issue of The Arrest News, several scenarios of ship arrests in different jurisdictions are commented on by the editors. In The STX Mumbai, the Singapore Court of Appeal considered a ship arrest situation where the maturity date of a supply claim was brought forward by the supplier when the debtor became insolvent. In The Res Cogitans, the English Supreme Court deals with another case of the OW bunker saga and considers the implications of the agreed bunker supply terms. Finally, in The Global Santosh, giant trader Cargill and NYK owners disputed the construction of an off hire clause where the cargo and the ship had been arrested.
The full judgment of these cases is accessible at the links provided at the end of each article.
