Decision ID: 003709

In June 2010 the 1992 Fund Executive Committee considered a proposal by the Director that he be authorised to make payments to those claimants who (a) had claimed in accordance with the 1992 Civil Liability and Fund Conventions and the Fund’s criteria; (b) had duly cooperated with the 1992 Fund, which had led to settlements having been reached between them and the Fund; and (c) were not a (central) government body or agency, It was also noted that the Director considered that a decsion to authorise him to make any other payments should only be taken once a satisfactory solution had been reached to two issues of principle, namely those relating to the ‘insurance gap’ and the ‘Methodika’ claim. The Executive Committee decided not to endorse the Director’s proposal and that the 1992 Fund should not, for the time being, make any payments in respect of this incident until the uncertainties in this case had been resolved.
