Decision ID: 000347

In February 1994 the 1971 Fund Executive Committee decided to postpone any decision as regards a claim by the Fisheries Council of the Region of Galicia for reimbursement of payments it had made to fishermen, noting that payments had also been made to some claimants by the Commission of the European Community. The Committee expressed the view that the Fisheries Council of the Region of Galicia should give the Director detailed information of any payments made and instructed the Director to examine in detail the issues involved and to contact the Commission of the European Community to obtain further information in respect of its payments. The Committee decided that, pending its decision as to whether or not the payments made by the two bodies should be deducted from the compensation payable under the Conventions, the Director should deduct the amount of these payments from any sum approved for compensation.
