Riyadh Arab Agreement For Judicial Cooperation Of 1983

In Qatar, separate arbitration laws apply to arbitration at the Qatar Financial Centre (QFC). The United Arab Emirates applies separate arbitration laws for arbitration proceedings established at the Dubai International Financial Centre (IDFC) or the Abu Dhabi World Market (ADGM). These free zones each have their own independent English-speaking courts, with judicial bodies of prestigious commercial and civil law judges. They therefore offer an attractive choice of seats in the region, due to the application of modern arbitration laws and the possibility of having used, if necessary, free zone courts. The immunity of the witness or expert expires no more than thirty days from the date on which the judicial bodies of the applicant renounce his presence on the territory of that party, unless there are reasons at his disposal to prevent his departure, or if she voluntarily returns to that area after her departure. Mediation established by the competent judicial authorities, in accordance with the provisions of this agreement, on the territory of one of the contracting parties, is recognized and effective on the territory of all other contracting parties after finding that it has the strength of an executive document with the contracting party in the territory of which it was concluded and that it contains no text contrary to the provisions of the Islamic Shari`a or the Constitution or the Constitution. or the rules of conduct of the contracting party who is required to recognize or implement such a conciliation. This agreement was written in Arabic in the city of Riyadh, capital of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, on Wednesday, the sixth day of April 1983, in an original filed with the general secretariat of the League of Arab States, the exact and true copy of which of each of the parties to this agreement is transmitted or must adhere to. The existence of several arbitration offices within a country is a frequent source of confusion between parties and practitioners. It is therefore important to make clear the seat provided for in the development of a compromise clause. For example, if the parties wish to respect their arbitration procedure within the DIFC (in order to use DIFC`s modern arbitration law and, if necessary, to be able to appeal to the DIFC courts), the arbitration agreement should specifically designate the DIFC as the seat of arbitration, rather than simply referring to “Dubai” or “the United Arab Emirates”.
