POST UNAT JUDGMENT APPLICATIONS

FINALITY OF UNAT JUDGMENT

UNAT judgments are final and binding on the parties. Article 11 of the UNAT Statute and Articles 24, 25, 26 and 27 of the UNAT Rules provide limited grounds for review of a final judgment which are requests for revision, interpretation, correction and execution.

REVISION OF UNAT JUDGMENT

Revision of UNAT Judgment: Article 24 of UNAT’s Rules of Procedure (Rules) provides that either party may file an application for a revision of a UNAT judgment based on the discovery of a new fact which at the time the judgment was rendered was unknown to UNAT and to the party applying for revision, provided that such ignorance was not due to negligence. The application must be filed within 30 calendar days of the discovery of the new fact and within one year of the date of the judgment. The application for revision is served upon the other party who has 30 calendar days to submit comments.

INTERPRETATION OF UNAT JUDGMENT

Article 25 of UNAT’s Rules provides that either party may file an application for interpretation of the meaning or the scope of the UNAT judgment. The other party has 30 calendar days to submit comments.

CORRECTION OF UNAT JUDGMENT

Article 26 of UNAT’s Rules provides that either party may file an application for correction of a UNAT judgment. Clerical or arithmetical mistakes, or errors arising from any accidental slip or omission, may at any time be corrected by UNAT, either on its own initiative or on the application by any of the parties.

EXECUTION OF UNAT JUDGMENT

Article 27 of UNAT’s Rules provides that where a judgment requires execution within a certain period of time and such execution has not been carried out, either party may apply to UNAT for an order for execution of judgment.
