Subject Matters
1) Interpretation of arbitration agreements

Findings
1) Arbitration agreements referring to disputes arising “out of” or “under” the contract are not to be given a narrow meaning.
2) The separability principle applies to claims that the contract was entered into by an agent who was bribed and thus lacked authority to conclude such contract.
