“Where both the petitioner and the respondent fail to bring the application, the Court or Tribunal shall dismiss the petition as abandoned. See paragraph 18 (4) which also provides that no application of extension of time to make the application shall be entertained. Paragraph 18 (5) forecloses the reopening of the petition once dismissed. It provides:
“18 (5): Dismissal of a petition pursuant to sub-paragraphs 3 and 4 is final and the Tribunal or Court shall be functus officio”
