Judgment No. 79
THE COMPLAINT IS DISMISSED.
The acts criticised show that "the complainant was guilty of serious misconduct; moreover, even if they had concerned only his private life - which is not the case - these acts were of a nature to compromise the organization's reputation and thus legally to warrant summary dismissal [...] under the terms laid down" in the relevant provision. The fact that the complainant "was ill at the time and that special sick leave for officials is normally provided for [...] constitutes no obstacle to the enforcement of the said provision by the Director-General."
