América Móvil v. Colombia América Móvil S.A.B. de C.V. v. Republic of Colombia (ICSID Case No. ARB(AF)/16/5)
Ownership of local subsidiary Comunicación Celular, S.A. (“Comcel”) that held concessions for mobile phone services.
Claims arising out of measures that allegedly prevented the claimant’s Colombian subsidiary Comcel from freely using or selling its wireless telecommunications assets after the termination of its concession contracts. The challenged measures include, among others, the Colombian Constitutional Court’s decision of 2013 ordering the reversion of certain telecommunication assets to state control on a concession’s expiry or termination and the subsequent refusal of the Government to recognize Comcel’s property rights over those assets following the contract termination.
