Owners of the Ship Herceg Novi v Owners of the Ship Ming Galaxy: CA 16 Jul 1998

A claim for daages was made after ships collided, and one sank.
Held: The judge had been wrong not to stay an action here where the proper jurisdiction was Singapore. That higher damages might be available under a different convention applying here did not mean that a party should be deprived of justice in Singapore. There is no one dominant international standard.
