Vijay Construction versus EEEL | 22 October 2020
Constitutional Court to hear Vijay’s petition case on November 3, 2020
The Constitutional Court has set the date to hear the petition in the case of Vijay Construction versus EEEL for November 3, 2020.
Vijay’s attorney, Bernard Georges, is turning to the Constitutional Court after it lost its appeal on October 2.
Seychelles’ Court of Appeal ruled to uphold the Supreme Court’s judgment in favour of EEEL, ordering Vijay Construction to pay out €20 million to EEEL.
Vijay’s petition to the Constitutional Court will argue that the Supreme Court violated its constitutional rights for fair trial.
Mr George will contend that the presiding judge in the Supreme Court case, Ellen Carolus, had taken into account the New York Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards (the New York Convention), despite the fact that Seychelles only became a signatory after the lawyers presented their arguments.
