Rusoro wins enforcement against Venezuela

March 2018

A US court has confirmed a US$1.3 billion ICSID additional facility award in favour of Canadian mining company Rusoro against Venezuela, rejecting arguments that the arbitrators exceeded their authority in calculating damages or that enforcement should be stayed pending a challenge to the award in France. In a judgment on 1 March, Judge Richard Leon in the US District Court for the District of Columbia confirmed the award, which Vancouver-based Rusoro obtained in 2016 in a claim under the Canada-Venezuela bilateral investment treaty financed by Calunius. An article on the decision is available on GAR, click on the headline to access it.
