2. THE ORGANIZATION SHALL PAY HER 10,000 FRENCH FRANCS IN MORAL DAMAGES.
3. IT SHALL PAY HER 20,000 FRENCH FRANCS IN COSTS.

The complainant objected to the content of her performance appraisal and requested so-called conciliation proceedings under Section 331 of Annex E to the FAO Manual. The Tribunal holds that "the process of conciliation was not properly followed: if it had been, allegations of unsatisfactory conduct would have been distinguished from allegations of unsatisfactory service. That is a distinction that the Tribunal drew in an earlier case against the FAO [...]: see Judgment 247, under 12 and 13."
