Decision ID: 001261

In October 2001 the 1992 Fund Executive Committee reiterated its serious concerns as regards the threats and allegations made almost continuously against the Head of the Claims Handling Office in Lorient and other staff in the office, against the Fund’s experts and the Director. The Committee stated that such behaviour was unacceptable and seriously hampered the operations of the Fund in France to the detriment of legitimate claimants and that it might prove necessary to close the Claims Handling Office if such behaviour were to continue. The Committee expressed the hope that the French judicial authorities would take appropriate steps to enable the Fund to operate in a normal way in France.
