Judgment No. 1038

Decision

THE COMPLAINT IS DISMISSED.

Consideration 5

Extract:

the complainant, who is challenging the non-renewal of his contract, is concerned that the director-general's decision may have been prompted by unsubstantiated charges. he alleges breach of his right to a hearing. "the plea is unsound because there was no element of disciplinary sanction in that decision [...] the director-general made a value judgment which did not require entering into a dialogue with him. there is no reason to hold that the director-general was not genuine in his evaluation of the complainant's suitability for the post of administrator or that his decision was based on any mistake of fact."
