The complaint is dismissed.
The complainant challenges the decision to dismiss his claim to reimbursement of travel expenses and other related costs.
travel expenses; complaint dismissed
[T]he complainant addressed the question of whether there should be an oral hearing arguing that to deny him an oral hearing would be to deny him due process. The Tribunal does not accept this argument. Quite plainly the powers conferred on the Tribunal by Article V of its Statute include the power to decide or decline to hold oral proceedings.
