Judgment No. 671
THE COMPLAINT IS DISMISSED.
the complainant was the second signatory of bank checks for amounts in excess of actual expenditure. criminal proceedings were introduced against the first signatory. a sum representing part of the compensation payable to the complainant was distraint. the complainant seeks payment of that amount. the tribunal observes that appeal against the decision was not lodged within the time limit and that the decision can no longer be challenged. however, because the decision is a "measure of distraint", it remains open to the complainant to request a review on the basis of a change of the position in law or in fact.
