|Section:||11||Heading:||Power to make foreign judgments unenforceable in the Colony, if no reciprocity||Version Date:||30/06/1997|
(1) If it appears to the Governor in Council that the treatment in respect of recognition and enforcement accorded by the courts of any foreign country to judgments given in the superior courts of the Colony is substantially less favourable than that accorded by the courts of the Colony to judgments of the superior courts of that country, the Governor in Council may by order apply this section to that country.
(2) Except in so far as the Governor in Council may by order under this section otherwise direct, no proceedings shall be entertained in any court in the Colony for the recovery of any sum alleged to be payable under a judgment given in a court of a country to which this section applies.
(3) The Governor in Council may by a subsequent order vary or revoke any order previously made under this section.
