Type: Opinions of Advocate General

Authority: European Authorities: Euopean Union' Court of Justice

Date: 12/13/2011

Subject: The Advocate general proposes to the Court considering inadmissible questions referred by Tribunale di Bolzano concerning the conflict between the national [provincial] law with the ECHR, and the scope of Directive 2000/43/EC on the principle of equal treatment between persons irrespective of racial or ethnic origin. However, he proposes to the Court interpreting Articles 11 (1d) and 4 of Directive 2003/109/EC, concerning the status of third-country nationals who are long-term residents, as precluding a provision of national [provincial] law, with regard to the allowances concerned, so-called 'housing benefit', by affording to long-term resident workers not belonging to the Union or to stateless persons treatment worse than that afforded to resident Community nationals (whether or not Italian).
