Suit Over Kazakh Fees

BRUSSELS, Belgium -- Belgian utility holding company Tractebel said it has filed a complaint with the International Arbitrage Court seeking to enforce rate hikes under its electricity and heating contracts in Kazakhstan.

"We have launched a procedure in the International Arbitrage Court in Stockholm to try and obtain [a ruling] that the contractual agreements for tariff increases for our electricity and heat agreements in Almaty would be honored by Kazakh authorities," Tractebel spokesman Jacques Van Hee said Wednesday.
