The Tribunal considers that the five complaints constitute an abuse of process for three reasons. The first being that the five complaints were essentially identical, the second being that they were clearly irreceivable and the third being that they contained unacceptable, offensive and unjustified expressions against the Organisation as a whole. This would justify the award of costs to the Organisation. However, in the circumstances, considering that the case is dealt with in accordance with the summary procedure, the Tribunal will not award costs.
