Requests for anonymity
On anonymity, no indication is given in the statutory texts (Staff Regulations and Statute of the Tribunal), or in the Tribunal’s rules of procedure. However, an applicant has the option to request anonymity when filing his/her appeal, and explain why he/she wishes it. This request is then reviewed by the Chair of the Tribunal.
The Tribunal having no written rules on anonymity, he is inspired in its decision by instructions of the European Court of Human Rights, including rules codified in Articles 33 and 47 of the Rules of Court which are resumed in practice directions issued by the President of the Court under Article 32 of the Rules of Court.
