Judgment No. 236
THE COMPLAINT IS DISMISSED.
The publication of a list of officials does not confirm the decision to transfer the complainant [against which appeal is time-barred] and does not constitute a new decision. The complaint is irreceivable.

The complaint was filed on 30 March. To be receivable it must impugn a decision notified to complainant on a date not before 30 December 1972. The decision of 17 November 1972 was the decision to transfer the complainant. "The complaint against it is clearly out of time."

"It has for many years past been the practice of the Tribunal to allow oral proceedings only in exceptional cases [...] The argument which the complainant wishes to advance at an oral hearing [does] not touch upon the issue of receivability upon which [...] the Tribunal decides this case. The request is therefore refused."
