After a series of unsuccessful challenges of European sanctions against individuals the Court of First Instance has for the first time annulled a Community measure freezing the financial assets of a particular legal person. In the case annotated here, the Court held that the EC Council decision listing the applicant as an alleged terrorist infringed the latter’s procedural rights. This has far-reaching implications for the way the European Union lists individuals and entities as terrorist suspects. Yet, the sanctions challenged in OMPI differ from those challenged in the earlier cases and it would be wrong to conclude that the CFI has changed its position in principle.
