Riyadh Arab Agreement For Judicial Cooperation 1983

(e) if the defendant has expressly agreed to fall within the jurisdiction of the courts of that party, whether by the designation of a chosen domicile or by the agreement of such a court, unless the law of that party prohibits such an agreement. The immunity of the witness or expert shall expire after thirty days from the date on which the judicial organs of the requesting Party renounce their presence in the territory of the requesting Party, unless there are reasons to prevent the control of the person from preventing his departure, or when he voluntarily returns to that area after his departure. When entering into an arbitration agreement with an opposing party in the Middle East, it is also important to be aware of all the requirements in place regarding the power to enter into an arbitration agreement (which may vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction). For example, in the United Arab Emirates, federal authorities must obtain authorization from the Council of Ministers and the Ministry of Justice before entering into an arbitration agreement. When entering into agreements with commercial companies in the UAE, it is advisable to ensure that the person signing the contract with an arbitration agreement has specific power to enter into an arbitration agreement (and not just a general authority to sign the contract). Requests for judicial and extrajudicial documents and documents shall be accompanied by a document stating: (b) when the aircraft carrying the delivered person is to land, the requesting Party shall submit a request for transit of the person; If the State which has been invited to give its consent to such a passage also wishes the same person to be delivered to it, such passage shall be made only when the requesting Party and that State have reached agreement on that matter. The party applying for recognition of such mediation or its enforcement shall submit a certified copy and an official certificate attesting that it has the force of an executive document issued by the judicial authority before which it was established. The publication or service of judicial or extrajudicial documents or documents does not allow the requested authority to pay the costs or expenses incurred. (b) Where the provisions of this Agreement are contrary to those of a previous special agreement, the extradition of accused or sentenced persons shall be most effective. There are also two regional treaties governing the enforcement of arbitral awards between Member States (the 1983 Riyadh Arab Agreement on Judicial Cooperation (the Riyadh Convention) and the 1996 GCC Convention on the Enforcement of Judgments, Delegations and Judicial Notifications). Without prejudice to Articles 28 and 30 of this Agreement, the decisions of arbitrators shall be recognised and enforced by each Contracting Party in accordance with the provisions of this Part, subject to the legal standards of the requested party, and the competent judicial authority of the requested Party may not discuss the subject matter of such arbitration proceedings or refuse enforcement of the award, except in the following cases: to appear before a court of another Party which, in order to be heard or advised as a witness or expert, the persons whom they intercept, provided that they are duly informed in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement, and the requesting Party shall bear the costs of transporting such persons.
