LONDON (Reuters) - The $50 billion awarded by the Hague’s arbitration court against Russia is the largest arbitration award ever, said Tim Osborne, director of the GML group of shareholders which made the claim.
An arbitration court in the Netherlands on Monday ruled in favor of shareholders in defunct Russian oil giant Yukos, ordering Moscow to pay roughly $50 billion in damages.
“I am delighted to confirm that those final awards, which were unanimous, are very favorable to the claimants,” Osborne told a news conference.
