    Decision on Respondent's Request for Clarification of the Partial Final Award

    Dear Counsel,

    Thank you for your submissions.

    1. The Panel issued its Partial Final Award for security on August 6, 2021. A corrected version was issued on August 12, 2021.

    2. On January 26, 2022, the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York confirmed the Partial Final Award. See Preble-Rish Haiti, S.A. v. Republic of Haiti, No. 21-CV-6704 (PKC), 2022 WL 229701 (S.D.N.Y. Jan. 26, 2022).

    3. On February 3, 2022, an amended judgment was entered on the certified award.

    4. We understand that the Republic of Haiti ("ROH") has filed a motion for relief from the judgment and that a briefing schedule has been established with respect to that motion.

    5. We further understand that an appeal of the judgment confirming the Partial Final Award is now pending in the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.

    In these circumstances, with the Partial Final Award having been confirmed and various court proceedings pending with respect to the resulting judgment, the Panel believes that it would be inappropriate to reopen the Partial Final Award for clarification as requested by ROH. The request is therefore denied on that basis. The request of PRH for sanctions against the Respondents is also denied.

    We express no opinion at this point on the merits of the issues briefed by counsel for PRH and ROH in their submissions following ROH’s request. Having received counsel’s submissions, we will address those issues in our final award.
