EGYPT SANCTIONS: EU COURT RULES IN FAVOUR OF FAVOUR OF THE MUBARAK FAMILY AND AGAINST THE EU

On 6 April, the EU General Court issued a judgment in a case brought by the Mubarak family against the EU over sanctions imposed on the former President of Egypt and his family in 2011, during the so-called “Arab Spring”.  Funds held in the EU by Mubarak, his 2 sons and their wives were frozen.  The Court found that restrictive measures imposed on the Mubarak family by the EU Council were unlawful from the outset, so ending a decade-long legal battle mounted by the family.  It also said that actions had gone against the fundamental rights enshrined in the European Convention on Human Rights and the EU Charter, and it awarded the Mubarak family their legal costs.
