Judgment No. 275
THE DECISIONS OF THE DIRECTOR-GENERAL OF 12 DECEMBER 1974 ARE QUASHED.
The Tribunal notes that the decisions of the Director-General were not promotions but reclassifications following the entry into force of the new Staff Regulations. These reclassifications "having been delayed for reasons for which the staff members are not responsible should be put into effect at the date on which the complainants took up their duties but, like the Staff Regulations themselves, not before 1 January 1971".
