Speaker: Sir Jeremy Cooke, International Arbitrator, 7 King’s Bench Walk & International Judge, Singapore International Commercial Court Synopsis:When a ship is deliberately scuttled and the cargo lost in consequence, do the ordinary rules of remoteness of damage apply to the cargo claim? Does “fraud unravel all” when cargo is deliberately damaged or lost, so that the cargo owner can recover for all losses caused, whether reasonably foreseeable or not? Does it matter if the claim is in negligence, conversion, damage to the reversionary interest or conspiracy and how does any contract affect the position between the parties?
These questions have arisen in disputes in arbitration and Sir Jeremy with years of experience in shipping law offers his answers.
