Each team may submit up to five (5) requests. Each request may contain one (1) question only. Please review below the requests submitted by all teams to avoid duplicate questions (and conserve your team's requests).

Req. No: 3 Questioning Mr Cavannaugh's relationship with Mekar
What were the terms of engagement and nature of services rendered by Mr Cavannaugh to the Mekari state authorities for previous arbitrations? Was he merely an external advisor or was he the officially-appointed legal counsel?

Req. No: 4 Requesting clarification on the credit ratings
In February 2019, IICRA issued Vemma a credit-worthiness rating of CCC+, whereas in September 2019, Fitch issued it a rating of BB. Can the Organising Committee clarify the meaning of these ratings? Is one more positive than the other and if so, then to what extent?

Req. No: 5 Requesting contexualisation of the quantum of fine imposed by the CCM on Vemma
Pursuant to its findings in the second investigation, the CCM imposed a fine of MON 200 Million on Caeli Airways. Can the Organisers contexualise this, either by providing the equivalent USD value payable or representing the fine as a percentage of Caeli's revenue?

Req. No: 6 Designation of CILS as an errant organisation
Para 2290 of the case proposition states that CILS has been designated by the Mekari Home Ministry as a foreign-funded organisation working to destabilise Mekar. When was this done? Was it before or after the report of 14th June 2020?
