Consideration 7

Extract:

"In accordance with the principle tu patere legem quam ipse fecisti, when an international organisation decides to fill a post by competition it must comply with the material rules which it has itself established for such appointments (see, for example, Judgments 2163, under 3, or 3032, under 22)."

Consideration 10

Extract:

"[T]he Tribunal has consistently held that a practice cannot become legally binding if it contravenes a written rule that is already in force (see, for example, Judgments 2959, under 7, or 3544, under 14)."

practice

Consideration 18

Extract:

"Contrary to the Organisation’s submissions, the failure to comply with the various requirements of the applicable text, adherence to which constitutes a safeguard for candidates, was obviously liable to have a real impact on the outcome of the disputed selection procedure."

Keywords

selection procedure

Consideration 20

Extract:

"It is well settled by the Tribunal’s case law that it is incumbent upon an international organisation to prove that a procedure which it has put in place has been duly followed, if the implementation thereof is disputed (see, for example, Judgments 2096, under 9, or 2792, under 7). Moreover, this approach is particularly appropriate in the instant case where the facts needed to prove this matter lie peculiarly in the knowledge of the Organisation."
