Consideration 10


[T]he Tribunalís view is that the complainant reasonably requested that her move to Sudan be delayed and that, pursuant to paragraph 5 to Annex 8 to the Staff Rules relating to rotation and the duty of care owed to the complainant, the Director General should have continued to temporarily waive her transfer under the rotation policy out of consideration for her daughterís special needs and related family circumstances until she was able to secure suitable facilities there for her educational needs. This would have been in accordance with the duty of care which IOM owed to the complainant, which was accordingly breached.
