Judgment No. 1730


The complaint is dismissed.

Consideration 14


"Like any other organisation in the United Nations system, the FAO has a duty to ensure that its staff attain the highest standards of efficiency and technical competence. The arrangements made with the Chinese government up to 1992 prevented the Organization from exercising its own discretion about the level of competence of Chinese recruits. The fact that the arrangements have ceased is to be welcomed and any surviving anomalies should be corrected, not perpetuated."
