ILOAT Judgment(s): 3225


application for execution; complaint dismissed

Consideration 4


Under Article VI, paragraph 1, second and third sentences, of the Statute of the Tribunal, the Tribunalís judgments are final and without appeal, but it may consider applications for interpretation, execution or review of those judgments. As the case law has consistently stated (since Judgment 82, under 6), the Tribunalís judgments are therefore immediately operative, a principle also stemming from their res judicata authority. International organisations that have recognised the Tribunalís jurisdiction are bound to take whatever action is required by a judgment, which must be executed as ruled (see, for example, Judgments 1887, under 8, 3003, under 12, 3152, under 11, and 3394, under 9). Furthermore, the parties must work together in good faith to execute judgments. Execution must occur within a reasonable period of time, having regard to all the circumstances of the case, especially the nature and the extent of the action which the organisation is required to take (see, for example, Judgments 2684, under 6, 3066, under 6, and 3656, under 3).
