The Court of Justice of the European Union by its judgment delivered on 29/10/2015 dismissed the appeal brought by the European Commission against the judgment T-117/12 of the General Court of the EU.

By the latter, the General Court of the EU had upheld the action of ANKO under Article 272 of the T.F.E.U., seeking to a declaration, on the one hand, that the European Commission failed to comply with its contractual obligations by suspending the payment of sums due to ANKO by way of implementation of two FP7 projects and, on the other hand, that those sums should be advanced to ANKO.

The defense of the aforementioned case, as well as of the appeal, was entrusted to “Christianos and Partners Law Firm”.

The Court by its judgment dismissed the single ground of appeal put forward by the European Commission, namely that the General Court erred in its interpretation of the general terms and conditions of the grant agreements. Taking into account the arguments put forward by both parties, the Court held that the appeal must be dismissed as, in part, manifestly inadmissible and, in part, unfounded.
