Judgment No. 3542


The complaint is dismissed.


As the Tribunal cannot hear complaints relating to recruitment procedures for external candidates, the complaint is dismissed.

appointment; competition; candidate; complaint dismissed

Consideration 5


"A steady line of precedent has it that the Tribunal may not hear complaints challenging a decision to reject the candidature of an external applicant for a post in an international organisation that has recognised the Tribunal’s jurisdiction (see Judgment 2657, under 3). This case law must apply here by analogy, since the complaint concerns the circumstances surrounding recruitment procedures within two administrative entities which are clearly identified as being separate, though they belong to the same international organisation."
