direct appeal to tribunal; summary procedure; complaint dismissed
"The evidence provided by the complainants shows that, at its 136th meeting [in] June 2013 (before these complaints were filed), the Administrative Council decided to forward their requests for review to the President of the Office. Thus, by the time they filed their complaints in July, August and September of that year, there had been a decision on their claim within the meaning of Article VII, paragraph 3, namely to undertake a review, which, according to Tribunal’s well established case law, precludes reliance on that provision (see, for example, Judgment 786, under 5)."
