Case Law C-127/13 P (02/10/2014)

Type: Judgment

Authority: European Authorities: Euopean Union' Court of Justice

Date: 10/02/2014

Subject: The Court rejected the appeal with whom the appellant claimed that the General Court breached the principle of the right to be heard by a court or tribunal established in accordance with the law, the rights enshrined in Article 6 of the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms signed at Rome on 4 November 1950 and by Article 47 of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union, in particular his right to be heard before the reassignment of the consideration of his action. Moreover the Court rejected the ground of appeal with whom he affirmed that the General Court wrongly refused to order the Commission to provide him with the documents to which access was refused contrary to Regulation No 1049/2001. Finally, the Court dismissed the action for annulment in so far as it was directed against the decision of the European Commission refusing access to the extract of the register concerning refusals of confirmatory applications for access to documents.
