2020-12-24 11:50

(新华社新德里)12月23日电,英国能源巨头凯恩能源公司(Cairn Energy Plc)周三宣布,为裁决其针对印度政府在高调税收纠纷中的主张而成立的法庭一致裁定其胜诉,并判给其12亿美元的赔偿金加上利息和费用。


这家总部位于爱丁堡的能源巨头在一份声明中写道:“凯恩能源的索赔依据《英印双边投资条约》(british - india bilateral investment treaty)的条款提出,仲裁法庭的法定所在地是荷兰,诉讼程序由常设仲裁法庭(Permanent Court of Arbitration)登记。”


“法庭一致裁定,印度违反了《英印双边投资条约》对凯恩能源的义务,已判给凯恩能源12亿美元的损害赔偿,加上利息和成本,该赔偿现已到期。”


该案件在2015年进入仲裁阶段,当时凯恩能源公司对印度税务当局提出的14亿美元的要求提出异议,这是与2007年其印度子公司上市有关的资本利得。

 

NEW DELHI, Dec. 23 (Xinhua) -- Britain's energy giant Cairn Energy Plc Wednesday announced that the tribunal established to rule on its claim against the Indian government over a high-profile tax dispute has unanimously ruled in its favor and awarded it 1.2 billion U.S. dollars plus interest and costs.

"Cairn's claim was brought under the terms of the UK-India bilateral investment treaty, the legal seat of the tribunal was the Netherlands and the proceedings were under the registry of the Permanent Court of Arbitration," reads a statement issued by the Edinburgh-based energy major.

"The tribunal ruled unanimously that India had breached its obligations to Cairn under the UK-India bilateral investment treaty and has awarded to Cairn damages of 1.2 billion U.S. dollars plus interest and costs, which now becomes payable."

The case had gone into arbitration in 2015 when Cairn Energy contested a demand from Indian tax authorities for 1.4 billion U.S. dollars owed on capital gains related to the 2007 listing of its Indian unit.
