Service of Arbitration-Related Proceedings on Foreign States
The Singapore Rules of Court provide for the service of process or orders outside of the jurisdiction. In particular, Order 69A sets out specific rules addressing arbitration-related proceedings in court. While the position in relation to commercial arbitrations seems relatively straightforward, Order 69A does not expressly cater for service of arbitration-related court proceedings on foreign States. In particular, how should orders granting leave for enforcement proceedings be served? Is the State Immunity Act requiring service of "any writ or other document" relevant? These were questions considered by the High Court in Josias Van Zyl and others v Kingdom of Lesotho [2017] SGHC 104. Paul Tan and Alessa Pang of Rajah & Tann Singapore LLP are representing the State party before the Singapore courts.
