direct appeal to tribunal; internal remedies exhausted; summary procedure; complaint dismissed
The Tribunal’s case law makes it clear that where the Administration takes any action to deal with a claim, by forwarding it to the competent authority for example, this step in itself constitutes a “decision upon [the] claim” within the meaning of Article VII, paragraph 3, of the Statute, which forestalls an implied rejection that could be referred to the Tribunal (see, for example, Judgment 3428, consideration 18, and 3146, consideration 12).
