Where the parties had expressly agreed that their disputes should be resolved by an arbitrator under arbitration that would be governed by Swiss law and have its seat in Switzerland, the natural consequence of that agreement was that any issues as to the validity of the unusual provisions of the arbitration agreement would fall to be resolved in Switzerland according to Swiss law. In the circumstances there were cogent reasons why the arbitrator should not be restrained by interim injunction from holding a hearing to consider his own jurisdiction.
