The General Court of the European Union in Luxembourg has today delivered a landmark decision annulling a European Regulation freezing the assets of Mr Kadi.

The 3 judges of the General Court (Seventh Chamber) today ruled that the contested freezing regulation must be annulled insofar as it relates to Mr Kadi.

In ordering the annulment of the regulation the General Court ruled that the regulation

was adopted in breach of Mr Kadi’s rights of defence and

in breach of Mr Kadi’s rights to effective judicial review and

constitutes an unjustified restriction of Mr Kadi’s right to property.
