Decision ID: 001992

In March 2007 the 1992 Fund Executive Committee recalled that the owner of a crêperie had submitted a claim for loss of income due to the incident, which had been rejected by the Fund since the claimant had bought the business six months after the incident had taken place, when he was fully aware of the consequences the incident could have on his commercial activity. The Committee recalled that the Court of first instance had held that the claimant had not proved that the reduction in turnover was a consequence of the pollution and had rejected the claim, and that the claimant had appealed against the judgement. It was noted that in January 2007 the Court of Appeal in Rennes had confirmed the judgement rendered by the first instance Court.
