Editorial remarks

Translation by Milena Djordjevic, LL.M., University of Belgrade, Serbia

"In the Mobile Sheer Baler case, the tribunal found that the seller’s failure to deliver the agreed machine to the buyer, while at the same time continuously promising the buyer that the delivery will occur and requesting further extensions of the time for delivery, constituted behavior contrary to the principle of good faith, since it was obvious from the seller’s behavior that it never had true and honest intentions to perform its part of the bargain."
