complaint allowed; breach; procedural flaw; right; harassment
[T]he Tribunal finds that, by failing to convene a hearing within the prescribed two-month time limit, the Organization unlawfully disregarded the provisions of paragraph 14 of the Statutes of the Appeals Board, thereby breaching the principle of tu patere legem quam ipse fecisti, which requires every authority to abide by the rules which it has itself established (see, for example, Judgment 3357, under 20).
