International Relief and Development Inc Ltd v Ladu

Case note | December 2014 | Available for purchase & free for members

Overview

In the August 2014 case of International Relief and Development Inc Ltd v Ladu, International Relief and Development Inc (IRD) (the applicant) sought enforcement of a foreign arbitral award by the Federal Court of Australia pursuant to section 8(3) of the International Arbitration Act 1974 (Cth) (IAA). The Federal Court of Australia ultimately found in favour of IRD, ordering the enforcement of the foreign award and that Mr Godfrey Ladu (the respondent) pay IRD’s costs of the application.

The case raises a number of issues in regard to the recognition of foreign awards and the grounds upon which the Federal Court of Australia may refuse to enforce a foreign award under the IAA.
