Judgment No. 633
THE COMPLAINT IS DISMISSED.
"The unconditional acceptance by the complainant of the Secretary-General's offer [...] amounted to a withdrawal of any objection he may have had to the Secretary-General's placing him on leave in the first place. Any question of principle which he might have been able to raise in regard to his being placed on leave otherwise than on his own application, and any distinction he might have sought to draw between annual leave entitlement and accrued annual leave, have been rendered purely hypothetical by his acceptance of the arrangement offered".
