Judgment No. 436
THE COMPLAINT IS DISMISSED.
Under Article VIII of its Statute the Tribunal is entitled to award the complainant compensation for the injury caused to him. "For this purpose the Tribunal may under Article 11 of its Rules order such measures of investigation as it considers desirable. But it will not order an investigation merely for the sake of ascertaining the facts; the investigation must be in aid of some relief, such as reinstatement or compensation, which it is within the jurisdiction of the Tribunal to grant."

"Even if the complainant had succeeded on the facts, he would fail in law in his plea of nullification [of the agreement on the termination of his appointment. Well before the agreement took effect] he knew all the matters which have led him to conclude that he was the victim of deception and bad faith. If what he believed was true, it probably would have entitled him to rescind the agreement. But he chose instead to affirm it by accepting payment of all the sums which the agreement secured for him and he cannot now refuse to be bound by it."
