Ransom piracy and time charterparties

Todd, Paul (2012) Ransom piracy and time charterparties Journal of International Maritime Law, 18, pp. 193-207.

Record type: Article


Cases arising from the recent spate of ransompiracy attacks off the Somali coast, a new and unwelcome threat to sea commerce, are beginning to trickle before the courts. This article is concerned with the effect of such attacks, and the threat of such attacks, on time charterparties. The arguments require consideration of the fundamentals of time charters, of the charterers' rights to give orders as to the vessel's employment, of the relationship between indemnities and breach, of causation, of war and piracy clauses, and of the relationship between different clauses in the same charterparty.
