Compensation for Departure from Iraq or Kuwait—Claims of Individuals: “A” Claims

War Reparations and the UN Compensation Commission

The chapter tackles the humanitarian impact of the invasion on hundreds of thousands of people, mainly migrant workers from African and Asian countries, as well as Kuwaitis, who were compelled to flee from Iraq and Kuwait. It discusses the jurisdictional landmark that the sole fact of departure from the territories of Kuwait or Iraq during the relevant jurisdictional period was a sufficient ground for compensation. The number of claims filed was large, and it was recognized that the demand for prompt processing and payment of these most urgent claims could be satisfied only through the establishment of very basic evidentiary requirements. The chapter reviews the role of the United Nations Compensation Commission (UNCC) in the contribution to mass claims processing.

Keywords:   departure, documentary evidence, expedited processing, standard of proof, matching process, databases, sampling, individual review, mass claims verification
