application for execution; application for interpretation; complaint dismissed
According to the Tribunal’s case law, an application for interpretation is receivable only if the meaning of the judgment concerned is uncertain or ambiguous to such an extent that the judgment cannot be executed (see, for example, Judgments 1306, consideration 2, 3014, consideration 3, 3271, consideration 4, and 3822, consideration 5).

application for interpretation
It should [...] be recalled that the Tribunal’s judgments, which, under Article VI of its Statute, are “final and without appeal” and which, furthermore, have res judicata authority, are immediately operative (see, for example, Judgments 3003, consideration 12, and 3152, consideration 11). As they may not later be called into question except when an application for review is allowed, they must be executed by the parties as ruled (see, for example, Judgments 3566, consideration 6, 3635, consideration 4, and [...] 3822, consideration 9).

[A]s the case law shows, the Tribunal awards simple interest as a rule; it awards compound interest only in exceptional circumstances, in which case it explicitly states so in the decision of the judgment concerned (see Judgment 802, consideration 4, or, more recently, Judgment 3013, consideration 3).
