Judgment No. 3892
The complaint is dismissed.
The complainant contends that no final decision has yet been taken on her internal appeal.
According to firm precedent, a complaint filed directly with the Tribunal is irreceivable unless the complainant shows that the requirement to exhaust internal remedies has had the effect of paralysing the exercise of her or his rights. It is only then that she or he is permitted to come directly to the Tribunal where the competent bodies are not able to determine an internal appeal within a reasonable time, depending on the circumstances (see, for example, Judgment 3558, under 9).
