A Sticky Situation: The Sugar Charter Party 1999, “Government Interference” and the Perils of Force Majeure

The Commercial Court recently handed down a significant judgment on the interpretation of Clause 28 of the Sugar Charter Party 1999 and the effect of “government interference” on the running of laytime. The decision in The Muammer Yagci [2018] EWHC 3873 (Comm) provides helpful clarification of the operation of Clause 28 and underlines the importance of ensuring that force majeure provisions in charterparties are drafted carefully.
