“International arbitration proceedings were not ‘proceedings’ for the purpose of s 25 of the Civil Jurisdiction and Judgments Act 1982 to enable the English court to grant interim relief to preserve the outcome of the arbitration proceedings. Where injunctive relief was sought in the English court, the claimant should deal both with state immunity from the adjudicative jurisdiction of the court and with state immunity from enforcement. The court should consider and decide the question of state immunity at as early a stage on the proceedings as practicable.”
