Decisión nº: 000998

In April 1996 the1971 Fund Executive Committee noted that in April 1996 the Court of first instance held that the Civil Liability and Fund Conventions did not exclude claims for environmental damage, but that only the State of Italy was entitled to compensation for such damage and that the local authorities had no right to such compensation. It was also noted that the judge had decided that, since the environmental damage could not be quantified according to commercial or economic evaluation, he had assessed the damage as a proportion (approximately 1/3) of the cost of the clean-up operations, which would represent the damage that was not repaired by these operations. The Committee instructed the Director to lodge opposition in respect of the claim admitted for environmental damage.
