The case involved a petition to the Federal Tribunal for the revision of an international award issued by Swiss arbitrator Martin Bernet in Zurich on February 23, 2007. As you know, Swiss case law has determined that the revision of international awards falls within the jurisdiction of the Federal Tribunal. The case is interesting because after the award was issued, the petitioner discovered in its own archives a number of documents, which could have established that bribery had taken place.

The case involved a consulting agreement, which led to arbitration in Zurich. The sole arbitrator (Swiss lawyer Martin Bernet, a highly regarded arbitrator) assumed jurisdiction in 2005 and also held that the consulting agreement was valid in a subsequent award in 2007. New evidence was discovered and a request for revision was filed in 2008. The Federal Tribunal rejected the request for revision on March 14, 2008.
