Pleas in law and main arguments

The applicant puts forward that the EU Council’s imposition of restrictive measures on the applicant was a sufficiently serious breach of obligations intended to confer rights upon the applicant and accordingly the non-contractual liability of the EU is engaged.

According to the applicant, this breach was the direct cause of significant material and non-material harm to the applicant for which it is entitled to compensation.
