Mehdi Ben Ali wins case to annul listing on Tunisia sanctions list

195px-european_court_of_justice_insignia-svgWe previously reported here that three Tunisian nationals won their applications to annul their listings before the General Court of the European Union.

The next Tunisian case has also now succeeded, this time brought by Mehdi Ben Ali in Case T-133/12.  The judgment, handed down on 2 April 2014 in Luxembourg is here (only in French). The basis for the judgment is essentially the same as the previous cases concerning Tunisian sanctions.

The European Union’s sanctions relating to Tunisia are on the ‘sanctions in force’ section of this blog.
