Judgment No. 150
THE COMPLAINT IS DISMISSED.
"In cases where the Director-General suspects an official of having committed acts of undiscipline in the performance of or in connection with his duties, he has to take action in the most adroit fashion to safeguard, if possible, the reputation of both the organization and of the official. For that reason, before initiating the disciplinary procedure, the Director-General is always free [...] to summon the official and ask him for explanations."
