Judgment No. 3288
The complaint is dismissed.
The complainant unsuccessfully challenges a recruitment process.
"The Tribunal is of the opinion that, following the guidelines set out in Judgment 2959, the present complaint is unfounded. As Regulation 4.3 uses the term “normally”, the Tribunal finds that the Regulations governing the selection of staff members will be followed as written unless there is an exceptional situation in which it is not practicable to do so for objective reasons. Unlike the situation leading to Judgment 2959, the present complaint stems from a direct appointment that indeed can be considered as having occurred based on the “impracticability” of following the usual competitive selection process."
