Judgment No. 260
The Director-General's decision of 11 July 1974 is quashed.
the applicable provision permits termination if the person concerned is unacceptable to the material government or if he is unsuitable for his post. the government did not declare that the person concerned was "persona non grata". a statement by a government official involved in the project was not sufficient; the complainant was not "unsuitable" simply because he was unacceptable to the material government official. termination of the complainant's contract was unwarranted. the decision is quashed.
