E.O. 12958: N/A
TAGS: AORC APER PREL UNGA UNGA UNGA FI
SUBJECT: FINLAND: UN SYSTEM OF INTERNAL JUSTICE

REF: STATE 51372

1. (U) PolOff delivered the UN System of Internal
Justice demarche to Deputy Director General Pekka
Oinonen of the MFA's Legal Department and to Director
Kai Sauer of the Unit for General Global Affairs on
May 20.

2. (U) Oinonen stated that the GoF agrees with most
of the points in the US non-paper, and that the EU
and the US are generally on the same track. However,
at the GA legal experts meetings in June and July,
the GoF may raise concerns on legal security for
employees; the number of judges in the UNDT; right of
appeal based on material facts; and limitations
placed on "conditions of employment" claims.

3. (U) Regarding "Transitional Arrangements", they do
not support the transfer of existing cases into the
new system. Existing cases should be resolved on the
current system even if the tenure has to be extended,
Oinonen said; the new system should accept only new
cases.
