(3)     The Foreign State as Claimant

252.     Foreign state as claimant.

A foreign sovereign or state may be a claimant in proceedings in the English courts1. A foreign state need not sue in the name of the personal head of state2. When a foreign state sues in an English court it must comply with the procedural rules of the court3. Thus the foreign state may be required to furnish security for costs4, and it must make disclosure5.
