"The complainants request oral hearings on several grounds, but the Tribunal confines itself to noting that the written submissions are sufficient to render a reasoned judgment and the complainants raise “no issue that would justify the Tribunal departing from its consistent practice not to grant an oral hearing in cases which turn essentially on questions of law” (see Judgment 3059, under 9). Their request is therefore denied."
