Decision ID: 001644

In March 2005 the 1992 Fund Executive Committee noted that in November 2004 the Commercial Court in Vannes had rendered a judgement in respect of a claim for loss of revenue by a wholesale business operating from various locations in Brittany supplying bottled drinks to cafes, hotels and campsites (but not directly to tourists). It was noted that the Fund had rejected the claim on the grounds that it was ‘second degree’ tourism claim. It was noted that the Court had upheld the Fund’s position, stating that the claimant had failed to show that the reduced turnover was due to the pollution arising from the incident. It was noted that the claimant had appealed against the judgement.
