Consideration 9

Extract:

"Besides carrying out his allotted tasks an international civil servant has a duty to show such dignity of behaviour as not to harm the good name that the organisation must enjoy if it is to do its job properly. He must in particular abide by the law and respect the public order of the host State or of any other country it may assign him to."

Keywords

staff member's duties; conduct; fitness for international civil service; organisation's reputation

Considerations 9 and 11

Extract:

The complainant failed time and again to meet his financial obligations - in particular the payment of alimony to his family - disobeyed the judicial and administrative authorities of the host country and received several prison sentences. The permanent mission of the host country and his creditors approached the Organization many times. "In behaving as he did he obviously showed scant regard for his duties as an international civil servant and betrayed the Organization's trust. It was only reasonable that the WMO should consider that his conduct precluded keeping him on." There was no breach of the rule of proportionality.
