Award n°1146 – Synacomex C-P – No discharge in the absence of b/l – Time lost – Demurrage (Yes). The b/l being a document of title to the goods, discharging cargo without its presentation, but against a letter of indemnity, is not mandatory for the Captain, whose refusal to discharge was legitimate. Time lost because of the b/l not being presented should be understood as time to count and demurrage is due.
