The European Court of Justice in 2016: The Year of the Restoration of a Lost Competence
The year 2016 was characterized by three elements: the incorporation of the Civil Service Tribunal within the General Court and transfer of jurisdiction; the implementation of the reform of the European Court of Justice (ECJ) through an increase in the number of judges at the General Court; a rise in judicial decisions of the ECJ concerning intellectual property rights and freedoms. Also, 2016 was the year in which the ECJ and the General Court dealt with cases concerning restrictive measures relating to Afghanistan, Belarus, Côte d’Ivoire, Egypt, Iran, Libya, Russia, Syria, Tunisia, Ukraine and Zimbabwe. Emblematic of this jurisprudential trend are the judgments on the cases of Yanukovych and Others, where the General Court upheld the freezing of funds of several Ukrainians.
