application for execution; complaint allowed; consultation
Consultation is a process and not an event. The nature of the process was discussed by the Tribunal in Judgment 380. At the very least consultation involves listening and exchanging views. [...] It is not possible to exchange views or discuss a scheme or proposal without an explication of the scheme or proposal.
