Richard Hills:


Have you by any chance completely overlooked (or forgotten) the WBF
minutes of 8th September 2009, item 3, which says:

" ..... Referring again to the principle that a specific law overrides a general
law, ..... "

An agreement defined by Law 69A, which specifically applies to an
agreement (or non-agreement) to a claim, overrides the general Law 79A1.

Where does this minute put your argument? I consider Sven to be incorrect.

The key issue is that the word "agreement" as defined by Law 69A is very
incongruous with the word "agreement" as defined in a standard dictionary.
