Judgment No. 261
THE COMPLAINT IS DISMISSED.
The complainant claims an indemnity to cover the cost of travel expenses incurred in connection with the proceedings. "[T]he organization did not agree to pay these expenses, the expenses do not arise out of this claimant's terms of appointment and were not in the opinion of the Tribunal reasonably necessary for the presentation of his claims. This claim therefore fails on the merits."

"The complaint does not relate to any non-observance by the organization of the complainant's terms of appointment and consequently this claim falls outside the Tribunal's jurisdiction. It is therefore unnecessary to consider whether or not it is time-barred."
