The UN Compensation Commission Governing Council held Iraq liable for oil field damages in Kuwait, including damage caused by Allied bombing because a direct link existed between Iraqi conduct and the damage. The panel held that reasonable expenses can include extraordinary costs because Kuwait took reasonable steps in mitigating its expenses. Salaries to permanent Kuwaiti personnel are not a direct result of Iraq's conduct and cannot be reimbursed.
