UN to recover overpayments made in claims filed against Iraq


The UNCC is housed in Villa La Pelouse $21 billion dollars of Iraqi oil money has been paid out to date by the United Nations Compensation Commission (UNCC), located at the UN Office in Geneva. Now, the UN has announced, there have been some “overpayments”, and some “inaccurate” payments. The UNCC reported, in a poorly-written and badly-edited press release issued on Friday in Geneva that it would take steps “to recover inaccurate awards involving overpayments”. It said that the UNCC had approved “a significant number of claims for correction”.  The errors are attributed to filing of duplicate claims, or to clerical errors by UNCC staff.
