2nd division Pairs competition in The Netherlands last Sunday. 

Extra information:

Over points/penalty doubles my partner and I play escapes (inverted psycho-suction). Redouble shows , or , or non-touching Major-minor. Any suit is suit + suit above, or the suit above that. So 2 means + , or . Or sit when 1NT doubled seems the best or least bad option. On the hand above partner wished to sit for 1NT doubled and wait for an overtrick or two. If the opponent uses an artificial double we can redouble for business. 

The explanation by West was that double shows points. Their convention card explicitly states Lionel against weak and strong NT. Double would show + other, minor = minor +

So EW claim they play point/penalty doubles but the hand very much looks like a Lionel-double. The hand is also about an AQ light for a penalty double imho. 

East leads a and the opponents took the first 7 tricks, -100 and 30something%.

If, why and how would you adjudicate? 

You got fixed, live with it
You deserve some kind of compensation
You keep your score, the opponents deserve some kind of penalty
