Decision ID: 000602

In April 1996 the 1971 Fund Executive Committee instructed the Director to lodge opposition in respect of those claims admitted by the judge in charge of the limitation proceedings which, in view of the admissibility criteria laid down by the Assembly and the Committee, were not admissible in principle, in particular the Italian Government’s claim for environmental damage, as well as any other admitted claims if the Director considered this appropriate. The Committee also stated that the time bar issue should also be addressed in the opposition.
