A policy adviser fired by the UN agency fighting AIDS is appealing her dismissal for misconduct, saying she was actually sacked for reporting that she had been sexually assaulted by a senior colleague, her appeal documents show. Martina Brostrom, from Sweden, was fired for sexual and financial misconduct in December. Her appeal was sent in April to the Global Board of Appeal of the World Health Organization.
