27.1. All persons who have a right in the moneys paid into the consolidated revenue fund pursuant to section 27 may, after establishing their quality, recover the moneys from the Minister of Revenue with interest calculated at the rate prescribed pursuant to the Public Curator Act (chapter C‐81) from the time the sums of moneys were paid into the fund.
Subject to the provisions of the Civil Code relating to the petition of inheritance, this right is not subject to prescription, except where it relates to moneys amounting to less than $500 when paid into the consolidated revenue fund, in which case the right to recover the moneys is prescribed ten years after the time of deposit.
The Minister of Finance is authorized to take out of the consolidated revenue fund the amounts required to meet the payments to be made pursuant to this section.
