Swiss Confederation (ICSID Case No. ARB/20/29) Dear Sirs, We write further to our letter of November 24, 2020 regarding the constitution of the Tribunal in this proceeding. On November 17, 2020, the Respondent confirmed its appointment of Mr. Toby Landau QC and requested that the Chairman of the ICSID Administrative Council appoint the arbitrators not yet appointed pursuant to Article 38 of the ICSID Convention. Subsequently, on November 24, 2020, the Responden t invoked Article 37(2)(b) of the ICSID Convention to establish the number of arbitrators and the method of their appointment. Also on November 24, 2020 , the Secretariat informed the Parties that it would seek the appointment of Mr. Landau , who accepted his appointment on November 30, 2020. In the same correspondence, ICSID indicated that it would proceed to appoin t the arbitrators not yet appointed pursuant to the Respondent's invocation of Article 38. ICSID also conveyed an offer to assist the Parties in selecting a mutually agreeable presiding arbitrator by conducting a ballot procedure should the Parties agree to such procedure. The Respondent agreed to such a procedure on Eingestellt über www.PDF-ins-Internet.de - Haftung für Inhalt und Inhaber aller Rechte ist der Puplisher Kontaktdaten und Anbieterkennung des Puplishers/Autors entnehmen Sie bitte dem PDF-Archives auf www.PDF-ins-Internet.de. 2 November 27, 2020. In its letter of December 7, 2020, the Claimant did not agree to the ballot procedure for the selection of the presiding arbitrator, proposing instead to use a ballot procedure to select a five-member tribunal. To date, the Centre is unaware that the Claimant's proposal has been accepted by the Respondent. Therefore, the Tribunal continues to be constituted on the basis of Article 37(2)(b), and the Tribunal will be composed of three arbitrators, one appointed by each Party and the presiding arbitrator appointed by agreement of the Parties. Absent agreement of both Parties to ICSID's proposed ballot procedure as proposed on November 24, 2020, such process will not be conducted. Hence , the Chairman of the ICSID Administrative Council will proceed to appoint the two arbitrators not yet appointed pursuant to Article 38. It is our intention to propose to the Chairman of the ICSID Administrative Council the appointment of Mr. Gabriel Bottini, a national of Argentina, as co-arbitrator in the present case, and Sir Daniel Bethlehem, a national of the United Kingdom, as the presiding arbitrator. Mr. Bottini was designated to the ICSID Panel of Arbitrators by the Chairman of the ICSID Administrative Council, and Sir Daniel Bethlehem was designated to the ICSID Panel of Arbitrators by the United Kingdom. Their curriculum vitae are attached. Please note that Mr. Bottini makes the following disclosure: "I am acting as arbitrator appointed by the respondent in an investment arbitration where the claimant is represented by Dr. Veijo Heiskanen and other lawyers of Lalive. The other arbitration bears no connection to the present case or to the parties involved in this case. Thus, I do not consider that this affects in any way my impartiality and independence." Sir Daniel Bethlehem has also informed the Secretariat that he is acting as a presiding arbitrator in an arbitration where a party is represented by Lalive. He explained to ICSID that the other arbitration bears no connection to the present case. If either party wishes to submit any observations related to these proposed appointments, these should be received by Wednesday, December 23, 2020. Yours sincerely, Meg Kinnear Secretary-General Attachments Eingestellt über www.PDF-ins-Internet.de - Haftung für Inhalt und Inhaber aller Rechte ist der Puplisher Kontaktdaten und Anbieterkennung des Puplishers/Autors entnehmen Sie bitte dem PDF-Archives auf www.PDF-ins-Internet.de.
