Dear General 1 : In view of the conclusions in the tribunals report it seems hard to understand how you could be confused:

(35) “We have no doubt whatsoever of the culpability of Captain X and that his dismissal resulted therefrom. Not only was it perfectly clear Captain X failed to diagnose a simple fault but he effectively abandoned his aircraft and conducted himself in a high handed and arrogant fashion”

(36) “We accept he fell below the standard expected of him. We regard his evidence as disingenuous. We believe he has attempted too mislead us. We have little difficulty in finding that he only has himself to blame for his dismissal and we can offer him very little sympathy for that indeed”

(38) “Yet for his dismissal to have been effected fairly it is important that it was conducted procedurally fairly. We do not believe it was”

(40) “We find the dismissal to be procedurally unfair. We do not think it was substantively unfair”

(42) “Had the dismissal not been procedurally defective, we have very little doubt Captain X would have been fairly dismissed”

Don’t know about you but seems clear enough to me General 1?

Do you have a link to the judgement, or the proper name of the case: ie A vs B?
