Judgment No. 1183
THE COMPLAINT IS DISMISSED.
"The purpose of probation is to find out whether a probationer has the mettle to make a satisfactory career in the organization. The competent authority will determine [...] whether or not to confirm the appointment and must be allowed the utmost measure of discretion in deciding whether someone [...] shows, not just the professional qualifications, but also the personal attributes for the particular post in which he is to be working. Only where the Tribunal finds the most serious or glaring flaw in the exercise of the Director-General's discretion will it interfere."
