"Enforceability of Foreign Laws"

This is a brief discussion of USA v “A Ltd” (High Court, Cook Islands, PL57/00, 4 December 2001, Greig CJ) in which the rule that a court will not enforce a foreign penal, revenue or other public law, was confirmed. The author draws specific attention to the decision that a law, which provides only in part for a penalty, will nevertheless be classified as a penal.
