ICSID Denies East Kutai's Request To Be Added As Party To BIT Arbitration

WASHINGTON, D.C. - A tribunal for the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID) on Feb. 6 released a decision that rejected an application filed by the Government of the Regency of East Kutai to be joined as a party to an arbitration filed by a mining company against the Republic of Indonesia, finding that the company's acceptance of arbitration under a bilateral investment treaty did not include third parties (Churchill Mining PLC v.
