Judgment No. 3197

Decision

The application for review is dismissed.

Summary

The Tribunal dismissed the application for review of Judgment 2946, as there was no new fact giving rise to review.

Consideration 2

Extract:

"[A]s provided in Article VI of the Statute, the Tribunal’s judgments are final. Accordingly, they are subject to the application of the principle of res judicata and will only be reviewed in exceptional circumstances and on limited grounds. That is, “failure to take account of particular facts, a mistaken finding of fact that involves no exercise of judgment, omission to rule on a claim and the discovery of some new facts which the complainant was unable to invoke in time in the [earlier] proceedings” (see Judgment 1952, under 3)."

Consideration 4

Extract:
