    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 3

    Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 7

    Extract:

    "The special service agreement that the complainant signed stated that it was between him and the United Nations. The fact that it provided for services to [subsidiary bodies of the FAO] does not make either of those bodies or the FAO itself a party to the contract or liable thereunder. The conclusion is that the Tribunal is not competent to hear the case."

    International Labour Organization
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 8

    Extract:

    The complainants regard as a breach of their acquired rights an amendment to the Staff Regulations whose effect is to confer on the United Nations Administrative Tribunal competence for disputes concerning the reckoning of pensionable remuneration. But the Tribunal "cannot treat an amendment to the rules on competence as 'loss of an essential legal safeguard'. After all, with the new text competence goes to an independent and impartial international administrative tribunal."

    Considerations 8 and 9

    Extract:

    The World Food Program is "a joint endeavour of the United Nations and the FAO.

    Consideration 19

    Extract:

    "The Tribunal is not competent to interpret the [United Nations Joint Staff Pension] Fund Regulations.

    Consideration 7

    Extract:

    "the decision of the secretary-general of the united nations to apply the [general service salary] scales which are now in force in its geneva office was challenged by an official of the united nations in case no. 225 [...] before the administrative tribunal of the united nations. this tribunal is satisfied that the united nations tribunal is the proper forum for the determination of this issue. that tribunal upheld as valid the decision of the secretary-general of the united nations." the decision taken by the secretary- general of the wmo to apply those scales therefore stands.

    Consideration 5

    Extract:

    it is significant that the defendant organisation has provided for the application of the united nations staff rules and regulations. "this tribunal would therefore hesitate to depart from any interpretation which had been placed upon any regulation by the united nations tribunal. the fundamental question in issue cannot, however, be decided as a matter of pure interpretation."

    Consideration 1

    Extract:

    "the prescribed time limit must be held to have been observed if a complaint ... has been filed with [the tribunal] late, but was sent within the period of 90 days to the administrative tribunal of the united nations. this interpretation is justified because of the links between the international organisations, and in particular by the fact that some staff members" fall within the jurisdiction of the latter tribunal in matters concerning their pension rights.

    Extract:

    The complainant suffers from total incapacity for work. He asks the Tribunal to recommend to the Joint Staff Pension Fund to pay him a permanent pension.

    On The Substance

    Extract:

    The existence of a secret document vitiates the equitable application of the Regulations and affects both the interests of the staff as a whole and that of justice itself. "Vide, Judgment No. 15 of the United Nations Administrative Tribunal: 'the applicant cannot be penalised because certain information is considered by the respondent as confidential and the applicant has no opportunity either of knowing that the reason is or of challenging it."
