Judgment No. 213
THE COMPLAINT IS DISMISSED.
"If [the complainant] intends to impugn the refusal to give him a new appointment which he alleges in his complaint had been promised to him, he is not impugning any decision embodying such a refusal, and in any event he ought not to have addressed himself directly to the Tribunal before submitting an appeal to the [internal] appeals body [...] The fact that he was received by the Secretary-General [...] cannot be regarded as an alternative to such an appeal."
