Koenders satisfied with award of damages in Arctic Sunrise case
Foreign minister Bert Koenders has said he is satisfied with the final Award on Compensation by the Permanent Court of Arbitration’s tribunal in the case involving the Russian seizure of the Arctic Sunrise. The tribunal today announced that Russia must pay the Netherlands almost €5.4 million. It had previously ruled that Russia had acted unlawfully when in 2013 it seized the Greenpeace vessel and arrested its crew.
