Judgment No. 209

Decision

THE COMPLAINT IS DISMISSED.

Summary

Extract:

the complainant contends that the payment of his salary in united states dollars and not in swiss francs was in violation of his terms of appointment. he has no such acquired right. besides, he had accepted payment in united states dollars for twelve years without protest. the decisions taken by the authorities concerning these payments are not open to discussion in view of a settlement. the secretary-general was in no way required to reverse those decisions following the devaluation of the dollar and the tribunal will not interfere with them.
