step; complaint dismissed

Consideration 3


The Tribunal has consistently held that the principle of equal treatment requires, on the one hand, that officials in identical or similar situations be subject to the same rules and, on the other, that officials in dissimilar situations be governed by different rules defined so as to take account of this dissimilarity (see, for example Judgments 1990, under 7, 2194 under 6(a), 2313, under 5, or 3029, under 14). The Tribunal notes, as did the Internal Appeals Committee, that while it is true that the duties of all the members of boards of appeal are identical, their legal and administrative status is different depending on whether they are recruited externally or appointed internally.
