The complainant's termination has not been justified on the grounds of serious misconduct. "Reinstatement is no longer possible. The Tribunal therefore awards him, in accordance with Article VIII of its Statute, compensation in a sum of 600 dollars, the full amount of remuneration due for the rest of his contract."
