Order the Commission of the European Communities to pay the costs.

Pleas in law and main arguments

In support of her application, the applicant first alleges failure to comply with the rules relating to the establishment of the CDR. The authorities infringed the rules of procedure laid down by the General Implementing Rules for Article 43 of the Staff Regulations, made manifest errors of assessment and failed to comply with the duty to give reasons.

The applicant also pleads breach of the rights of the defence, of the duty to have regard for the interests of officials and of the principle of sound administration.

Lastly, she claims that the authorities are guilty of a misuse of powers and of an abuse of process.
