APPLICATION FOR PERMISSION TO ENFORCE ARBITRATION AWARD UNDER C j SECTION 12 OF THE ARBITRATION ACT

SYKES J

1. CFC Construction (Engineers) Limited (CFC) has applied for permission to enforce an

arbitration award as if it were a judgment of this court. Section 12 of the Arbitration Act

permits this. Runaway Bay Development Limited (RBDL) is opposing the application. This is

an inter partes hearing. This came about because on December 20, 2005, at the

commencement of CFC1s ex parte application, RBDL appeared and indicated their

opposition to the application. It was thought prudent to invite RBDL to make submissions in

this regard.
