Français

Electricité de Beyrouth Company (France v. Lebanon)

Overview of the case

This case arose out of certain measures taken by the Lebanese Government which a French company regarded as contrary to undertakings that that Government had given in 1948 as part of an agreement with France. The French Government referred the dispute to the Court, but the Lebanese Government and the company entered into an agreement for the settlement of the dispute and the case was removed from the List by an Order of 29 July 1954.


This overview is provided for information only and in no way involves the responsibility of the Court.
