Judgment No. 1299
THE COMPLAINT IS DISMISSED.
The Tribunal holds that the wording of UNESCO Staff Rule 105.4(a) "is not clear enough to allow of a ruling and that comparison between the English and French versions fails to resolve the issue. [...] The obscurity of the text prompts reference both to the 'preparatory work' on the rule and to the organization's practice in applying it."
