ENGLISH COURT HAS JURISDICTION ALLOWING CONSPIRACY CLAIM BY GUERNSEY COMPANY AGAINST PERUVIAN RESIDENTS IN GAMBLING CASE

Out-law on 10th August carried an article saying that the Court of Appeal has ruled that a Guernsey-registered online gambling company (Eurasia Sports Ltd, is a betting agency incorporated and regulated in Alderney) can pursue a conspiracy claim against a group of Peruvian-resident customers in the English courts.  The company operates through an agency called Xanadu, which is incorporated in Ireland but which provided its relevant services through consultants based in England.  Eurasia has claimed that 11 defendant individuals, all of whom were resident in Peru at the time of the relevant events, conspired to defraud it by placing bets on credit that they had no intention of repaying.  Before the case could proceed, Eurasia first had to establish that it was able to bring its claims in England and Wales, based on the common law – this was a complex argument that could include not just the UK and Peru, but also Alderney, Guernsey, Ireland, Peru and Malta
