A dispute arose between Glencore Grain and Conqueror. Conqueror sent a notice of arbitration to the email address of an employee of Glencore Grain who left the company in September 2016.
Glencore Grain did not take part in the arbitration proceeding and was unaware of it until the notification of the award on 28 October 2016.
Hence, it asked the High Court to set aside the award as it was emailed to someone without authority to receive it, which has been accepted by the High Court.
