Decision ID: 001602

In October 2004 the 1971 Fund Administrative Council noted that in February 2004 the Court of Appeal in Basse-Terre (Guadaloupe) had confirmed the first instance Court’s judgement ordering the shipowner’s insurer to pay the 1971 Fund Ffr 8.2 million or €1.3 million (£890,000) plus interest. It was also noted that the shipowner’s insurer had not appealed against the judgement to the Court of Cassation and that the Fund’s French lawyers were considering what steps should be taken to enforce the judgement.
