Seeking Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Court Judgments and Arbitral Awards in Egypt and the Mashriq Countries

Journal of Dispute Resolution
Vol. 2018, Issue 1
Article 11, pp. 109 et seq.

 

Asserting a claim in an international transaction is often complex. If a transaction involves parties from different countries, the venue of dispute resolution will often be in a jurisdiction different from that where enforcement may have to be sought. In such a case, any ruling obtained will have to be recognized by the competent authority of the country where enforcement is sought (known as requested country). Obtaining recognition of a foreign ruling in the Middle East and North Africa is considerably challenging. Despite some progress having been made over the last decade, local courts are still rather reserved towards foreign ruling. In particular, the tendency of local authorities to conduct a full revision au fond under an extensive interpretation of the ordre public exception. This article provides an overview of the regulations in Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, and Egypt and formulates some suggestions on strategies of dealing with the challenges posed by the existing regimes.

In 2016, the Egyptian legislator passed the new Value Added Tax law, which was subsequently published in the Official Gazette and took effect on September 8, 2016. The new VAT Law replaced the current General Sales Tax Law, Law 11/1991 (GST Law) and implemented a comprehensive VAT system in Egypt. This contribution provides an overview of the new legislation and its implications for businesses operating and or trading with Egypt.

New Iraqi Labor Law

Year in Review

Seite 703 ff.

 

In October 2016, the Iraqi legislature issued a new Iraqi Labor Law, Law 37/2015 (New Law), which replaced the old Iraqi Labor Law, Law 71/1987 (Old Law), in its entirety and entered into force on February 7, 2016. The New Law seeks to align Iraqi employment legislation with the standards of the International Labor Organization (ILO). Although the New Law — as the Old Law — was drafted as a piece of federal legislation applying to the whole of Iraq, it remains to be seen whether it will be applied in the Kurdish region in Iraq. In fact, a regional labor law for the Kurdish region has been under review by the Kurdish parliament for some time now. Most notably, the New Law introduced an end-of-service gratuity similar to that existing in other Middle Eastern jurisdictions, provisions of collective labor rights including the right to strike (which was banned in 1987 by the Old Law), and improved protection against discrimination in the workplace. This contribution provides an overview of the new law.

Amendments to the United Arab Emirates' Labor Law

In late 2015, the United Arab Emirates’ Federal Ministry of Labor (now Federal Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratization) issued three decrees amending certain provisions of the UAE Federal Labor Law, Federal Law 8/1980 (UAE Labor Law): Ministerial Decrees 764/2015,121 765/2015,122 and 766/2015. All three decrees came into effect in January 2016. They introduced a compulsory standard employment agreement (Ministerial Decree No. 764), amended the provisions of the UAE Labor Law concerning termination of employment (Ministerial Decree No. 765), and introduced new conditions for obtaining new work permits (Ministerial Decree No. 766). Furthermore, the Ministry amended some provisions of the Wage Protection System when it passed Ministerial Decree No. 739 in the fall of 2016. In particular, the new decree introduced increased penalties for non-compliance with the provisions of the WPS regulations. This contribution highlights the changes relevant for businesses in the UAE.
