Oriental has reinsured the risk in London. The reinsurance policy, which was governed by English law, contained a “follow the settlements” condition in the following terms: “Comply with all conditions, conditions and statements of the initial policy issued by the reinsured to the insured for the period indicated here in respect of the amounts and interest insured above”. The reinsurance policy contained a typhoon guarantee identical to the original insurance guarantee, except that the second paragraph (starting with “However…” “) of the original insurance guarantee was omitted. One of the ships planned under the original policy was the Princess of the Stars, a ro-ro vehicle and a passenger ferry. The ship left Manila on 20 June 2008 despite a typhoon warning. He had loaded cargo on board, as well as 713 passengers and 138 crew members. The ship was lost during the voyage, more than 800 people lost their lives and only 32 of the people on board survived. In the Philippines, a number of freight interest claims have been filed against Sulpicio and Oriental. While these rights were working by the Philippine courts, reinsurers in England sought a negative right to the finding that the reinsurance guarantee must be interpreted in accordance with English law, but not in the same way as the original insurance guarantee. The assumption of back-to-back coverage was not in GE Reinsurance Corp (formerly Kemper Reinsurance Co)/New Hampshire Insurance Co,36, in which the reinsurance contract contained collateral that was not included in the original insurance. The guarantee of the reinsurance contract provided that an employment contract concerning S would be “maintained for the duration of the policy”.
The original insurance did not contain any provision relating to the employment of S. Langley J distinguished Vesta, which included the initial insurance guarantee in the reinsurance. In GE Reinsurance, one policy remained completely silent on the relevant terms that contained the other.37 Similarly, the presumption did not apply in Aegis Electrical and Gas International Services Co Ltd v Continental Casualty Co38, where the terms “accident” and “subject matter” were defined in both initial and reinsurance insurance and the definitions were not identical. The definition of reinsurance has shown that the level of coverage of reinsurance is narrower than that of direct insurance. A reinsurance contract may be offered before an initial insurance contract is concluded. . . .
