Judgment No. 819
THE COMPLAINT IS DISMISSED.
"'Periods of professional experience after completion of studies may be credited only from the documented date on which university studies were successfully completed'. Military or 'comparable' service counts as reckonable professional experience, [...] no distinction [being made] between periods before and after graduation. [...] Yet the impugned decision was no breach of the principle of equality: the principle holds good only as between those who are in the same position in fact and in law".
