In case of being proven his/her rights to the land, he/she shall be compensated for all damages suffered on behalf of the eviction and shall be reinstated in possession of the land.As far as the decisions of the board are concerned, article 6 establishes that the chairman of the board shall inform the Settlement Officer of the decision taken in respect of every application.
