Consideration 11

Extract:

"It is true that the General Provisions require the application for prior authorisation to be made before the treatment or services begin, but they do not require authorisation to be given before that time. It was therefore open to the complainant to run the risk of having to bear the cost of the operation herself if the refusal of prior authorisation was later confirmed."

Consideration 14

Extract:

"The right to an internal appeal is a safeguard enjoyed by international civil servants. The ultimate decision-maker cannot therefore depart from the conclusions and recommendations of the internal appeal body without giving adequate reasons for her or his decision (see Judgments 2699, under 24, 2833, under 4, and 3208, under 11)."
