Decisions of the Administrative tribunals of the United Nations and related intergovernmental organizations

By resolution 67/241 of 24 December 2012, entitled “Administration of justice at the United Nations”, the General Assembly took note of the reports of the Secretary-General on administration of justice at the United Nations, on amendments to the rules of procedure of the United Nations Dispute Tribunal and the United Nations Appeals Tribunal and on the activities of the United Nations Ombudsman and Mediation Services, and endorsed the conclusions and recommendations contained in the report of the Advisory Committee on Administrative and Budgetary Questions. The General Assembly also requested that the rules of procedure of the Dispute Tribunal and the Appeals Tribunal be amended accordingly whenever a decision of the Assembly entailed a change. In this regard, the Assembly recalled paragraph 35 of its resolution 66/237, in which it had addressed the execution of judgments of the Dispute Tribunal imposing financial obligations on the Organization pending an appeal with the Appeals Tribunal, and noted that corresponding changes to the rules of procedure of the Dispute Tribunal and the Appeals Tribunal had not yet been made.
