  • set aside the judgment of the General Court of the European Union of 29 June 2018, HF v Parliament (T‑218/17, EU:T:2018:393) in so far as it rejects the form of order sought by HF requesting that the decision of the European Parliament of 3 June 2016 rejecting her request for assistance be annulled;
  • dismiss the appeal as to the remainder;
  • annul the decision of 3 June 2016 rejecting HF’s request for assistance;
  • dismiss the action as to the remainder;
  • order the Parliament to bear its own costs and to pay those incurred by HF in the proceedings at first instance and the appeal proceedings.
