Case Report by Runyang Liu, Editor Diego Luis Alonso Massa
A Dutch investor, Lao Holdings N.V., brought an action for relief against the Government of Laos pursuant to the Agreement on Encouragement and Reciprocal Protection of Investments between the Lao People's Democratic Republic (PDR) and the Kingdom of the Netherlands (the "Laos-Netherlands BIT", or the "BIT"), alleging, inter alia, expropriation. The Tribunal found that the Claimant had not established these allegations on factual basis and found bad faith in Claimant's conduct, and thus dismissed the claims with costs awarded to the Respondent.
Burden of proof for claims of bribery and corruption, bad faith.
