Show Summary Details


The Claims Settlement Declaration provided in Article one for efforts to settle claims covered by Article two during a six-month period, following which claims could be submitted to the Iran–United States Claims Tribunal. The resulting deadline was January 19, 1982. Despite the publicity given to that deadline, a number of claims were received by the Tribunal after January 19, 1982. The Tribunal’s Registrar refused to file those claims. Some claims which had been timely filed were also refused by the Registrar for various failures to comply with other requirements of the Declaration or the Tribunal Rules. All those whose claims were refused were notified by the Registrar that the refusals could be appealed to the Tribunal, and many appeals were filed. Each appeal resulted in a Decision by the Tribunal with respect to the correctness of the refusal. While a few refusals were reversed on appeal, most were upheld.
