Judgment No. 2914


The complaint is dismissed.

Consideration 8


The Tribunal points out that, in the event of disciplinary measures, the staff member concerned enjoys a presumption of innocence and that, in accordance with the principle in dubio pro reo, he or she must be given the benefit of the doubt (see in particular Judgment 2351, under 7(b)). The burden of proof lies with the Organization which intends to take disciplinary action against a staff member.
