Decision ID: 004090

At their April 2016 session, the governing bodies noted with respect to the Plate Princess incident (a former 1971 Fund incident), that on 2 September 2015, the Puerto Miranda Union had applied to the Court of Appeal for permission to appeal the July 2015 judgment by the English High Court in respect of this incident and that in September 2015 the 1992 Fund had filed a statement of reasons why permission to appeal should be refused. On 9 February 2016, the Court of Appeal had refused the Puerto Miranda Union’s request for permission to appeal as, in its view, there was no real prospect of success since the reasons given by the Judge in the July 2015 judgment were right. However, the Puerto Miranda Union took advantage of the right to apply to the Court of Appeal for an oral hearing to reconsider the Judge’s refusal to grant permission to appeal and in early March 2016 the Court of Appeal advised that the hearing would take place on 26 October 2016.
