Chapter Summary

The existence of a judgment is the point of departure for the related procedures of interpretation and revision, governed respectively by Articles 60 and 61 of the Statute as supplemented in the corresponding Rules of Court. The cases of interpretation and the cases of revision that have come before the Court all arose out of difficulties encountered in the process of complying with a decision of the Court embodied in a final judgment, and, especially in cases of revision, in circumstances that might suggest an attempt by the judgment debtor to limit the scope of, if not evade, the obligation of compliance undertaken in Article 94 of the Charter. Both the Permanent Court and the present Court, before admitting an application for the interpretation of a judgment on preliminary objections, have given to the named respondent the opportunity to make its views known to the Court.
