CJEU - C 27/09 P / Judgment France v People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran et al.

Key facts of the case:
 
In the context of implementation of SC Resolution 1373 an organisation had been considered, by the Council, as being involved in terrorist acts (within the meaning of Article 1 of Common Position 2001/931/CFSP) and, therefore, added to the list referred to in Article 2 (3) of Regulation No 2580/2001 by Council Decision 2002/334/EC (with the effect that all financial and economic resources of the enlisted organisation be frozen). The inclusion of this organisation was upheld by Decision 2008/583/EC, which, however, was, on application of the organisation, annulled by CFI, by its Judgment of 4.12.2008, T-284/08, due to disregard of the right to be heard of the applicant. This judgement was, in turn, appealed against by France. In the meantime, with reference to the said Judgment of CFI, the organisation was removed from the list by Council Decision of 2009/62/EC.
 
Results (sanctions) and key consequences of the case:
 
The appeal was dismissed, so that the Judgment of the CFI of 4. 12. 2008, T-284/08, became final.
