Judgment No. 1608
The complaint is dismissed.
"the complainant had two obligations. first, he had to observe the hierarchical channels of communication if he wanted to refer a matter to the organisation's decision-making bodies. secondly, article 17 of the regulations required him to exercise discretion in the use of information that came to his knowledge in the course of duty. since he acted in breach of both of those obligations the reprimand was fully justified."
Organization rules reference: ARTICLE 17 EUROCONTROL STAFF REGULATIONS
