London Arbitration 5/23

BREACH OF CHARTERPARTY – DISCHARGING CARGO WITH A LIEN – VIOLATION OF CHARTERER’S ORDERS FOR DISCHARGING CARGO In London Arbitration 4/23, a dispute arose between charterers and owners regarding cargo discharge instructions leading to this counterclaim. The charterers asserted that they instructed the owners not to unload cargo, for they were exercising a lien on the cargo to recover $3,705,033 owed by sub-charterers.
