Judgment No. 378
THE COMPLAINT IS DISMISSED.
According to the applicable provisions, the Director-General is entitled to abolish posts, with due respect for given criteria. The Director-General had to abolish posts and did not disregard the material criteria. The organisation was under no duty to take extraordinary temporary measures; the provisions in force in other organisations are not relevant. The dismissal was therefore valid.
