"The issue is whether the applicant was affected by it. We are unanimously of the view that, as a question of fact, the applicant was not suffering from this condition at the relevant time, that is to say at the date of her dismissal."
"It was necessary for us to consider the events upon which she relied, in support of her case, to show that she was present at an extremely traumatic incident, namely when a motorcyclist was killed at a public display. Our analysis of the evidence led us to believe that she did not witness the incident in the manner she had described and indeed on the balance of probabilities did not see it at all."
Order: application allowed. The matter to be dealt with in half a day before a court of three, of whom one must have employment appeal experience.
