Judgment No. 334

Decision

1. The complaint is dismissed.
2. The Tribunal records the ITU's undertaking to fulfil its obligations towards the complainant under Regulation 9.1(e) of the Staff Regulations and Staff Rules.

Consideration 4

Extract:

The complainant argues that as a permanent official who had lost his post he was entitled to be appointed to a suitable vacant post without having to take a test. The applicable regulation provides for the grant of priority subject to two conditions: the existence of a suitable vacant post and the staff member's capacity to give useful service in that post. "To determine whether the two conditions are met it may sometimes be necessary to test the staff member whose post has been abolished." There was no mistake of law.

Consideration 5

Extract:

There is no need to consider the complainant's allegation of bias. "The Tribunal merely observes that the [decision to terminate the complainant for abolition of post] would be tainted with abuse of authority only if there had been no objective grounds for it." In the instant case there were such grounds.

Consideration 6

Extract:

The complainant's post was abolished and for a trial period he was assigned other duties. The Secretary-General was bound to take account of the reports on his performance in the various posts he held. More or less severe criticisms were made of him. In view of the evidence before the Tribunal, the Secretary-General may not be said to have drawn clearly mistaken conclusions therefrom, which warranted the termination of his appointment.
