The preliminary relief judge lifted the pre-judgment attachments in all three cases. Grounds for this decision is that it is not likely that COFCO’s claim will amount to more than US$ 187,5 million, which amount has been put into an escrow account pursuant to an order in an emergency ICC arbitration in 2017. More specifically, the judge decided that COFCO, while claiming more than US$ 500 million in damages, was not able to substantiate its claim and provide the judge and other parties concerned with any calculation. This also resulted in the decision to lift the pre-judgment attachments concerning the sole shareholder Swansae and the directors. Another claim, to disclose information relating to the attachments, was denied.
