The House of Lords currently considering whether to give the go-ahead for an appeal in a case centring on a collision between two vessels in the Straits of Singapore. The owners of the Herceg Novi are seeking to challenge an appeal court ruling last July, which over-turned an earlier Admiralty Court decision that proceedings brought by them in respect of the collision should be stayed, pending the outcome of parallel proceedings in the courts of Singapore. The case raises the question of which courts can achieve the best level of justice and what the implications to owners of the Herceg Novi would be if they are deprived of the benefit of the 1976 Convention on Limitation of Liability for Maritime Claims. The Law Lords have currently adjourned consideration of the matter.
