Starbiz – Up Close and Personal with Datuk Sundra Rajoo
Starbiz, 13 April 2013 – It isn’t unusual these days to see Datuk Sundra Rajoo shuttling between multiple countries, talking up the achievements of the Kuala Lumpur Regional Centre for Arbitration (KLRCA), which he has headed for three years now.
The centre, as he describes it, had a bumper year in 2012. It launched the second edition of its Fast Track Rule as well as a set of regulations called i-Arbitration, the first in the world for resolving disputes arising from syariah-based commercial contracts.
The Islamic arbitration rules, Sundra’s pet project, helped KLRCA bag the Global Arbitration Award last September for best innovation at a ceremony in Bogota, Colombia.
