Nima SARL v The Deves Insurance Public Company Ltd; The Prestrioka: CA 30 Jul 2002

A marine insurance contract was entered into for goods to be transported between two ports. A side note provided that cover was to start from the time the goods left the warehouse. The Act provided that the insurance was void from the time such a cargo was diverted from the route agreed.
Held: The variation of the insurance contract endorsement related to a voyage rather than a time policy. Therefore, Act still applied, and the insurer was discharged at the moment the deviation occurred.
