Judgment No. 3467


The complaint is dismissed.


As the complaint is out of time and therefore clearly irreceivable, it is summarily dismissed.

Judgment keywords


time bar; summary procedure; complaint dismissed

Consideration 2


"According to Article VII, paragraph 2, of the Statute of the Tribunal, to be receivable, a complaint must have been filed within ninety days after the complainant was notified of the decision impugned. This time limit is an objective matter of fact and the Tribunal will not entertain a complaint filed after it has expired. Any other conclusion, even if founded on considerations of equity, would impair the necessary stability of the parties’ legal relations, which is the very justification for a time bar (see Judgment 2821, under 8, and the case law cited therein)."
