Shanning International Ltd v Lloyds TSB Bank plc; Lloyds TSB Bank plc v Rasheed Bank and another: ComC 17 Dec 1999

The parties were linked together by a series of bonds, deposits, and guarantees and indemnities which had been designed to enable trade with a customer in Iraq. The Regulation operated to prevent any claim being made under the bond, and therefore the bank could not resist an action for the repayment of a deposit on the basis that it might be called upon under its own bond.
