“Dubai Sun”: We represented the Charterers of the “Dubai Sun”, a vessel which touched the bottom of Berth 15 at the port of Maputo, Mozambique while loading a cargo of chrome. The Charterers successfully sued the Maputo Port Development Corporation (MPDC – the Port Authority) in the Maputo High Court. It was particularly heartening to note the independence of the Mozambique Court and its willingness to give a judgment in favour of a foreign entity against a partially State-owned local entity.
