Decision ID: 000755

In April 1997 the 1971 Fund Executive Committee authorised the Director to make final settlements as to the quantum of all claims arising out of the incident, to the extent that the claims did not give rise to questions of principle which had not previously been decided by the Committee. However, in view of the uncertainty as to whether the total amount of established claims might exceed the total amount of compensation available under the 1969 Civil Liability and the 1971 Fund Conventions, the Committee decided that the Director was not authorised at that stage to make any payments.
