L'immunité d'exécution après la loi Sapin 2

Abstract : The first decision drawing the consequences of France’s new legislation on sovereign immunity from execution (Law No. 2016-1691 of 9 December 2016, also known as the “Sapin II Law”) was rendered on 10 January 2018 in the well-known Commisimpex case. This decision makes clear that, under French law, the attachment of a foreign State’s diplomatic assets is conditioned upon the State expressly waiving its immunity in writing and specifically listing the assets or category of assets covered by the waiver. Such an express waiver is, however, not required for the attachment of a foreign sovereign’s commercial assets.
