Judgment No. 241
THE COMPLAINT IS DISMISSED.
There is no "question of misuse of authority. [Indeed] there is no reason to suppose that in terminating the complainant's appointment the Director-General was actuated by motives foreign to the organization's interests."

According to the complainant, the decision not to renew her contract was taken on mistaken grounds, that is on incorrect facts. In concluding that there had been no prejudice, that her case had been fully examined and that despite warnings her work performance had not improved, the Director-General "took account of facts which are not proved to be incorrect." Each of these points is confirmed by the evidence in the dossier.
