• For appeals lodged on or after 1 January 2023

The Statute of the Tribunal stipulates that judgments must not contain any information likely to enable the general public to determine the identity of the appellant or the witnesses (art. 14.5 of the Statute of the Tribunal). In application of this rule, the judgments of the Administrative Tribunal refer to the appellants by their initials and omit any information likely to make them recognisable to the general public.

The Tribunal has decided to apply the same rule to any decision it may be called upon to take in the course of its activities, such as in the case of a request to rectify, interpret, review or execute a judgment or an application for a stay of execution.

An applicant who wishes to benefit from a greater degree of anonymity may make a reasoned request to the Tribunal when the appeal is lodged, specifying - in the event that his request is granted by the Chair - whether he wishes to be designated by his initials or by a simple letter (for example 'X', 'Y' or 'Z') and whether he wishes his gender not to be disclosed. The same procedure applies, mutatis mutandis, to any application to the Tribunal other than an appeal..

  • For appeals lodged before 1 January 2023

Only judgments for which a request for anonymity was granted by the Chair of the Tribunal have been pseudonymized.

Prior to the entry into force of the new Statute of the Tribunal, in the absence of written rules on anonymity, the Tribunal was guided by the texts and instructions of the European Court of Human Rights, including Articles 33 and 47 of the Rules of Court.
