AI investigation: “Four previously confidential claims under the OIC Investment Agreement are uncovered as the controversy over the use of the contract in arbitration proceedings continues,” dated May 16, 2019. Instead, to overcome the OIC Secretary General`s failings, investors were referred to the Secretary General of the Permanent Court of Arbitration (“PCA”) to form the Court of Arbitration. The PCA “did so on the basis of the argument that the MFN clause contained in the OIC agreement allowed the applicant to enter into another investment contract – a contract that provides UNCI`s arbitration rules, and therefore a pillar for the PCA to designate an authority with decision-making power, which bases its application on the most privileged clause of the investment agreement.”  Although the treaty was largely forgotten after its ratification, the OIC Investment Agreement is one of the largest multilateral investment agreements in the world. It came into force in February 1988. It intersects with the Agreement on the Settlement of Investment Disputes between States and Nationals of Other States, as well as several bilateral treaties. The Court of Arbitration for Hesham Al Warraq/Republic of Indonesia ruled that Article 8 could be used to import clauses from other bilateral investment contracts if the clauses the investor wished to introduce were based on the same purpose as the OIC articles.  The OIC Investment Agreement, adopted in 1981 and in force since 1988, is an international investment agreement of the older generation. The treaty, signed by 36 OIC member states and ratified by 29, provides for several classic investment protection measures, such as the nation`s ban on illegal expropriation, protection and security, and the nation`s most favoured treatment. It also includes an ad hoc provision for investor-state arbitration (Article 17), which “is set up for a dispute resolution body arising from the agreement.” The IIA browser is constantly adapted by reviewing and commenting from UN member states.
