Application 2017-02 - Judgment of 26 January 2018
By this application, the Applicant challenges the decision of the President of the African Development Bank to release him from service at the Bank, effective February 1, 2016. The Applicant further seeks a review of the President’s refusal to accept the recommendation of the Staff Appeals Committee that he be paid compensation for emotional distress, as well as moral and reputational damages. At the same time, the Applicant asserts that these recommendations fall short of the relief to which he was entitled by reason of the discontinuance of his employment with the Bank. The Applicant says that he should, in addition, be entitled to additional salary and benefits, including salary in lieu of notice, as well as damages for delay and out of pocket expenses, including legal costs, an a positive letter of reference.
