In May 1977, there came a case, Siskina, where the mareva principle was applied which resulted in the author's decision being reversed by the House of Lords. The author states here that in his career he has suffered many reversals but they were never so disappointing as this one. Particularly this is so because he felt that the decision was unjust. It was unjust to buyers of cargo in the Middle East. This story is so dramatic that the author takes it from his judgment in the Court of Appeal. The decision in the Siskina case was on such narrow grounds that it did not shake the solicitors of the City of London at all. They kept on course. Siskina was finally decided on 26 October 1977.
