Judgment No. 2230

Decision

THE COMPLAINT IS DISMISSED.

Consideration 13

Extract:

The complainant claims that a payment made to him by mistake should not have been recovered from him three years later. "While it is a general principle of law that lapse of time may extinguish an obligation, the complainant has not cited any provision relative to recovery of overpayments [...] establishing a prescriptive period beyond which the undue payments may no longer be recovered."
