Judgment No. 1576
The complaint is dismissed.
"since the award of end-of-service promotion falls within the director-general's discretion, the tribunal exercises only a limited power of review: it will intervene only if there has been breach of some rule of form or procedure or a mistake of law or fact or failure to take some essential fact into account."
