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 an appeal against an award issued in Zurich on September 28, 2008. The Arbitral tribunal (Pierre A. Karrer, Daniel Girsberger and Daniel Wehrli, chairman) denied jurisdiction in part and this was the main object of the appeal. The Court confirmed that an award denying jurisdiction in part is final to that extent, whilst the same award, to the extent that it accepted jurisdiction in part, is an interlocutory award.
