Judgment No. 48
THE COMPLAINT IS DISMISSED
The complainant has refugee status. The fact that she was in the country of the organization's headquarters "was due neither to a legal barrier to her emigration nor to any physical impossibility of securing admission to another country. Therefore, even if the notion of residence involves fulfillment of the two conditions of physical presence and intention to reside", the complainant was rightly deemed to have been resident in the country and was rightly classified as a locally recruited official.
