Decision ID: 001929

In October 2006 the 1992 Fund Executive Committee noted that in June 2006 the Commercial Court in Quimper had rendered a judgement in respect of a claim by a fish wholesaler for losses in 2000 allegedly due to the incident, which had been assessed and paid by the Fund for a lower amount than claimed. It was noted that the Court, whilst stating that it was for it to interpret the concept of ‘pollution damage’ in the 1992 Convention, had held that the claimant had not provided any evidence of a loss in excess of that already compensated by the Fund.
