EMAC chairman Sir Anthony Colman dies

EMAC chairman Sir Anthony Colman dies

The Emirates Maritime Arbitration Centre (EMAC) paid tribute to the achievements and contributions its chairman Sir Anthony Colman, who died on 27 July.

EMAC said it was deeply saddened by Sir Anthony’s passing who it described as the “driving force” of the centre from the very beginning and “was pivotal in directing the focus of our independence, impartiality and efficiency”.

Majid Obaid Bin Bashir, vice chairman and secretary general, EMAC said: “As a former judge and international arbitrator, Sir Anthony continued to advocate EMAC’s development as a milestone for the region, provided it keeps its core values. We will honour his memory by dedicating ourselves to carrying out his vision for EMAC.

“Each one of us not only grieves at the passing of an incredible individual, but also for his family’s loss. On behalf of the EMAC Executive Committee, Board of Trustees, members and staff, I would like to extend my deepest sympathies to Sir Anthony’s family during this sad time.”

Dubai-based EMAC opened its doors last September providing a regional centre of maritime arbitration in the Middle East region.
