  • Judgment 4324


    130th Session, 2020
    European Patent Organisation
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR
    Summary: The applicant seeks execution in full of Judgments 3045 and 3792 and recognition that the disease which led to his invalidity status is occupational.

    Consideration 3

    Extract:

    The Tribunal recalls that, under Article VI of its Statute, its judgments are “final and without appeal”, and they are therefore “immediately operative”, as its earliest case law established (see, in particular, Judgment 82, consideration 6). The Tribunal has further noted that the principle that its judgments are immediately operative is also a corollary of their res judicata authority. Thus, international organisations that have recognised the Tribunal’s jurisdiction are bound to take whatever action the decision in a judgment may require, which must be executed by the parties as ruled (see Judgments 553, consideration 1, 1328, consideration 12, 1338, consideration 11, 3152, consideration 11, and also 4235, consideration 9, and the case law cited therein). Judgments must be executed within a reasonable period of time (see Judgment 3656, consideration 3).

    Consideration 5

    Extract:

    When an organisation is required to take a new decision after a case has been referred back to it by a judgment of the Tribunal, if the applicable provisions have been amended in the meantime, the organisation must take that decision in compliance with the procedure now in force (see, for example, Judgment 3896, consideration 4).

    Summary: The complainant challenges the decision to reject his claim for compensation for a service-incurred disability.

    Consideration 7

    Extract:

    If, in truth, the OPCW had been uncertain about what the Tribunal’s orders in Judgment 3854 meant or had considered they deviated from the issue requiring determination, it could have sought the Tribunal’s assistance (see, for example, Judgment 3003, consideration 31). It did not do so. The OPCW, in advancing this submission, breached its duty to execute the Tribunal’s judgment in good faith (see, for example, Judgment 3823, consideration 4). The complainant is entitled to compensation for this breach (see Judgment 2684, consideration 10).

    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR
    Summary: The complainant asks the Tribunal to find that UNESCO has failed to execute Judgment 3936 and to order the Organization to review her case.

    Consideration 5

    Extract:

    The Tribunal recalls that its judgments, which, according to Article VI of its Statute, are “final and without appeal” and which also have res judicata authority, are immediately operative (see, for example, Judgments 3003, under 12, and 3152, under 11). As they may not later be called into question except when an application for review is allowed, they must be executed as ruled (see, for example, Judgments 3566, under 6, and 3635, under 4). The parties must work together in good faith to execute judgments (see, for example, Judgments 2684, under 6, and 3823, under 4). Judgments must be executed within a reasonable period of time (see Judgments 2684, under aforementioned consideration 6, and 3656, under 3). In order to ascertain whether that has occurred, all the circumstances of the case must be taken into account, especially the nature and the scope of the action which the organisation is required to take (see, in particular, Judgment 3066, under 6).

    Extract:

    It should [...] be recalled that the Tribunal’s judgments, which, under Article VI of its Statute, are “final and without appeal” and which, furthermore, have res judicata authority, are immediately operative (see, for example, Judgments 3003, consideration 12, and 3152, consideration 11).

    Summary: The complainant filed an application for execution of Judgment 3689.

    Consideration 5

    Extract:

    [T]he Tribunal’s case law recognizes, as an exception to the principle recalled in consideration 3 [...], that in some cases an international organization may refrain from executing a judgment as ruled if execution proves impossible owing to subsequent facts or to pre-existing facts of which the Tribunal was unaware when it ruled on the case (see, inter alia, Judgments 3261, consideration 16, and 3824, consideration 4)[.]

It should be recalled in this regard that such interest simply represents an objective form of compensation for the time that has elapsed since the date on which the principal amount was due, and that the mere fact that there was a delay in the payment of that amount is sufficient to justify payment of interest, whether or not the debtor was at fault (see, for example, Judgment 1403, consideration 8).

    Summary: The complainant asks the Tribunal to order WHO to comply with the obligations imposed on it by Judgment 3871 and, in particular, to reinstate him with all legal consequences.

    Consideration 9

    Extract:

    [I]t must be emphasized that WHO does not really have such freedom [to reinstate the complainant] since point 2 of the decision in Judgment 3871 requires it to reinstate the complainant “as far as possible”.

    Summary: The UPU filed an application for interpretation and review of Judgment 3930 and the complainant in that case filed an application for execution of that judgment.

    Consideration 22

    Extract:

    The Tribunal recalls that an application for review does not suspend the execution of the judgment (see Judgment 1620, consideration 7).

    Consideration 24

    Extract:

    The delay in fully executing Judgment 3930 has caused the complainant moral injury. In awarding moral damages, the Tribunal takes into particular account the following: the duration of the delay, the fact that there was no need to seek a decision from the Council of Administration to authorize the execution of a judgment of the Tribunal, particularly when the budget was already approved for payments of awards, and the misleading presentation made by the International Bureau (in the presentation to the Council of Administration debating whether or not to execute the judgment) that the complainant’s illness was feigned. The International Bureau acted without presenting any evidence from a medical board and without having completed a disciplinary proceeding with regard to that unproven allegation, in violation of its duty of care and in breach of the adversarial principle. The UPU must respect the dignity of its staff members and preserve their reputation.

    Summary: The complainant has filed an application for interpretation and execution of Judgment 3694.

    Consideration 4

    Extract:

    With regard to the clarification requested under a) [...], the expression an “Appeals Committee, composed in accordance with the applicable rules”, in the present case refers to the procedural rules in force at the time of the execution of the judgment (i.e. the new examination of the appeal). It must be accepted that the procedural rules governing the composition of the Appeals Committee could be changed and that, in the event of a change, the new provisions should apply to the complainant’s appeal. In saying this the Tribunal is not expressing a view about the lawfulness of the new provisions. As the application for execution is only based on the arguments raised with respect to the application for interpretation, it is without merit.

    According to the Tribunal’s case law, at the stage of execution of a judgment by the parties, and likewise in the context of an application for execution, the judgment has res judicata authority and must be executed as ruled (see Judgment 3332, consideration 4). As a corollary of the res judicata authority, the Tribunal’s judgments are immediately operative, and, for this reason, an international organization is bound to take whatever action a judgment may require (see Judgment 3152, consideration 11). As to the time within which a judgment is to be executed, the following was stated in Judgment 1812, consideration 4 [...].

    Summary: The complainant has filed an application for execution of Judgment 3565.

    Consideration 8

    Extract:

    Pursuant to Article VI of the Tribunal’s Statute, the Tribunal is competent to review its decisions. Such review, however, may only take place in exceptional circumstances. One of the exceptional circumstances articulated in the case law is where there has been a failure to take into account particular facts that would have led to a different result. In relation to the execution of a judgment, this has been further refined to limit review to those cases where the Tribunal was unaware of the fact or facts that make execution of the decision impossible. If the execution of an order is impossible for this reason, it is incumbent on the party whose duty it is to execute the order to bring an application for review to resolve the matter.

The Commission’s submission that the Executive Secretary’s signature could be dispensed with overlooks the clear language of the order that it was obliged to execute.

    At the stage of execution of a judgment by the parties, pursuant to Article VI of the Statute of the Tribunal and according to its case law, the judgment has res judicata authority and must be executed as ruled (see Judgment 1887, under 8). However, an exception must be made to this principle when execution proves to be impossible owing to facts of which the Tribunal was unaware when it adopted its judgment (see Judgments 2889, under 6 and 7, 3261, under 16, and 3332, under 4).

    Considerations 7-8

    Extract:

    [The Organisation] executed Judgment 3421 as far as possible having regard to the change in circumstances since the end of the disputed competition. It did not act unlawfully by stating that it was impossible for it to re-open the competition, because this was prevented by a restructuring, the need for which cannot be contested. Nor did it act unlawfully by failing to provide additional information to the complainant, beyond that which it had provided at his request in the letter dated 1 November 2013.
    Nevertheless, the defendant’s failure to inform the Tribunal of a change in circumstances that would have rendered moot the complaint leading to Judgment 3421 led to the adoption of that same judgment, the execution of which is partly impossible. The complainant is thus entitled to moral damages, though it must also be taken into account that he too could have informed the Tribunal of the change in circumstances.

    Summary: The complainant has filed an application for execution of Judgment 3225.

    Consideration 4

    Extract:

    Under Article VI, paragraph 1, second and third sentences, of the Statute of the Tribunal, the Tribunal’s judgments are final and without appeal, but it may consider applications for interpretation, execution or review of those judgments. As the case law has consistently stated (since Judgment 82, under 6), the Tribunal’s judgments are therefore immediately operative, a principle also stemming from their res judicata authority. International organisations that have recognised the Tribunal’s jurisdiction are bound to take whatever action is required by a judgment, which must be executed as ruled (see, for example, Judgments 1887, under 8, 3003, under 12, 3152, under 11, and 3394, under 9). Furthermore, the parties must work together in good faith to execute judgments. Execution must occur within a reasonable period of time, having regard to all the circumstances of the case, especially the nature and the extent of the action which the organisation is required to take (see, for example, Judgments 2684, under 6, 3066, under 6, and 3656, under 3).

    Summary: The complainant has filed an application for interpretation and execution of Judgment 3507.

    Consideration 4

    Extract:

    Although the complainant believed that she should file an application for interpretation to this end, the Tribunal observes that the application can also be regarded, to a large extent, as an application for execution. Indeed, it is clear that in the complainant’s mind, the main purpose of the application, apart from obtaining an interpretation of the judgment, is to secure full execution of the judgment, as witness her claims for payment of the balance of the award against the Global Fund that she considers due and for interest thereon.
