tax; complaint dismissed
The complainant, alleging unlawful behavior on the part of the EPO, raises a claim for damages. As the Tribunal has stated on several occasions, the complainant bears the burden of proof and she or he must provide evidence of the injury suffered, of the alleged unlawful act, and of the causal link between the unlawful act and the injury (see Judgments 2471, under 5, and 1942, under 6). The complainant has not provided any evidence of those three elements in the present case.
