Cukurova Finance International Ltd and Another v Alfa Telecom Turkey Ltd: PC 30 Jan 2013

(British Virgin Islands) The claimant sought to recover shareholdings given in charge.
Held: There was an event of default, which entitled ATT to accelerate the loan and to appropriate – or forfeit – the charged shares, but that relief against forfeiture should be available to CH and CFI on appropriate conditions. Lord Neuberger giving the judgment of the Privy Council referred to the ‘title’ of the mortgagee in the following way: ‘In equity, a mortgagee has a limited title which is available only to secure satisfaction of the debt. The security is enforceable for that purpose and no other.’ and ‘any act by way of enforcement of the security (at least if it is purely) for a collateral purpose will be ineffective, at any rate as between mortgagor and mortgagee.’
Lord Neuberger, Lord Mance, Lord Kerr, Lord Clarke, Lord Sumption
