The Swiss Federal Court has heard an application by a corporation domiciled in Guernsey for the attachment of real estate, located in Switzerland, belonging to the Republic of Uzbekistan. Uzbekistan has opposed the application claiming sovereign immunity. The Applicant argued that its title, an award by a tribunal sitting in Paris, was sufficient to authorize attachment since all the requirements under the New York 1958 Convention existed. The case has gone from the District Court up to the Supreme Court.
