By HC/OA 491/2022 ("OA 491") filed on 26 August 2022, the applicant, CYW, sought, among other things, an order that the Final Award dated 16 May 2022, Award No 67 of 2022 (the "Award") made in an arbitration between CYW and the respondent, CYX, be set aside. The arbitration proceedings were seated in Singapore, administered by the Singapore International Arbitration Centre (the "SIAC"), and conducted in accordance with the Arbitration Rules of the Singapore International Arbitration Centre (6th Ed, 1 August 2016) (the "SIAC Rules"). I will refer generally to the arbitration proceedings between the parties as the "Arbitration".
OA 491 was initially filed in the General Division of the High Court of the Republic of Singapore. It was subsequently transferred to the Singapore International Commercial Court as SIC/OA 3/2022 ("OA 3").
In support of its application, CYW relies on s 24(b) of the International Arbitration Act 1994 (2020 Rev Ed) (the "IAA") and Art 34(2)(a)(ii) of the UNCITRAL Model Law on International Commercial Arbitration as enacted under the First Schedule to the IAA (the "Model Law").
