Judgment No. 124
1. The decision of the Director-General dated 4 August 1967 is quashed.
2. The case is referred back to the Director-General for him to reach a new decision, after taking account of the Appeals Board, on the whole of Mr. Pannier's claims.
The complainant seeks the rescission of decisions 1) cancelling the loan agreement and 2) deducting sums from his salary until repayment of his debt to the organization. The Tribunal is competent to rule on the second claim for relief. The lawfulness of the second decision depends on the lawfulness of the first. The Director-General accepted the finding of the Appeals Board that it was not competent to consider the appeal concerning cancellation of the loan and dismisses the appeal relating to salary deductions on its merits without going into the first claim. The complainant is referred back for a new decision on all the submissions, after taking account of the opinion of the appeals body.
