Judgment No. 571

Decision

THE COMPLAINT IS DISMISSED.

Consideration 4

Extract:

"It is not for the Tribunal to interpret the text of the guideline. The [Staff] Regulation leaves it to the discretion of the President to determine the number of years [of professional experience] so long as he has regard to the guideline. [...] He is entitled to have regard to the fact that the interpretation [put on it], whether right or wrong, has been applied consistently since the first staff were recruited and it cannot now be changed without causing injustice."
