Judgment No. 27
THE TRIBUNAL ORDERS THE ORGANISATION TO PAY TO THE COMPLAINANT, AS COMPENSATION FOR THE MORAL PREJUDICE SUFFERED BY HER, A SUM OF US $1000, AND REJECTS ALL OF THE COMPLAINANT'S OTHER CLAIMS.
"The facts previous to the engagement of the complainant by the defendant organisation have already been the subject of a decision by the United Nations Administrative Tribunal and may therefore not be considered, in keeping with the principle of res judicata pro veritate habetur."

"The only fault which can be attributed to the organisation is that it did not establish [...] clearly and precisely [the responsibility of the complainant in certain incidents] but left open to grave doubt the reasons which motivated the failure to re-engage the complainant [...]. The complainant should therefore be awarded an indemnity in compensation for the moral prejudice resulting from the equivocal explanation given of the failure to re-engage her, for which prejudice the award of a sum of US $1,000 will give her full relief."
