Dear all, I cannot see mention of this in the recent press round-up. Much as expected, the UN Compensation Council has awarded Kuwait only a fraction of the Kuwait Investment Authority claims which totalled US$ 72 billion plus interest of US$ 23 billion. The award, reported in 142 pages, is US$ 1.5 billion. see http://www.unog.ch/uncc/reports/r03-15.pdf There remain environmental damage and other similar claims. It will be very surprising if Compensation Council awards more than 10% of such claims. Due to the reduced level of funding now expected, the UNCC has decided to cap quarterly payments at US$ 200 million, paying up to US$ 100,000 on each outstanding claim in the order of approval.
