Peter and Andrew acted under the instructions of a P&I club for the owners for a vessel flagged in the Marshall Islands. The vessel was involved in a collision with a Malta flagged vessel in Alpha Anchorage, Chittagong, Bangladesh.
An admiralty action was brought by the owners of the Malta flagged vessel in the Singapore High Court. As part of the proceedings, an application was made on behalf of the owners of the Marshall Islands vessel to stay the admiralty proceedings in Singapore on the grounds of forum non conveniens. The matter was eventually settled favourable.
