Bolivia agrees to pay ICSID award

Bolivia has agreed to pay US$42.6 million to satisfy an award from the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID) in favour of Chilean company Quiborax, ending a 12-year dispute over the expropriation of mining concessions by a previous administration.

Bolivia fails to annul mining arbitration award

Twelve years after the dispute first came to the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID), an ad hoc committee has upheld a US$48 million award in favour of Chilean mining company Quiborax against Bolivia – finding that the tribunal’s decision to order the suspension of domestic criminal proceedings was not a basis for annulment.
