Compagnie du Port, des Quais et des Entrepôts de Beyrouth and Société Radio-Orient (France v. Lebanon)
OVERVIEW OF THE CASE
This case arose out of certain measures adopted by the Lebanese Government with regard to two French companies. France instituted proceedings against Lebanon because it considered these measures contrary to certain undertakings embodied in a Franco-Lebanese agreement of 1948. Lebanon raised preliminary objections to the Court’s jurisdiction, but before hearings could be held the Parties informed the Court that satisfactory arrangements had been concluded. Accordingly, the case was removed from the List by an Order of 31 August 1960.
