Judgment No. 621
1. THE ORGANIZATION SHALL PAY THE COMPLAINANT A TOTAL OF $15,000 UNDER THE HEADS SET OUT ABOVE.
2. HIS OTHER CLAIMS ARE DISMISSED.
"A contract is concluded only if both parties have shown contractual intent, all the essential terms are worked out and agreed on, and all that may remain is a formality of a kind requiring no further agreement." [The letter of appointment, which in this case is lacking, is a formality which calls for no further agreement.]
contract; intention of parties; condition
The Tribunal holds that a contract was concluded. Only the letter of appointment, a formality not requiring further agreement, was lacking. Owing to withdrawal of support from a third party, no action was taken, the project having been suspended. On the evidence, the Tribunal awards the complainant "damages for the direct injury caused by the administration's behaviour."
