Action brought on 7 November 2017 — Wattiau v Parliament

(Case T-737/17)

(2018/C 032/46)

Language of the case: French


Applicant: Francis Wattiau (Bridel, Luxembourg) (represented by: S. Orlandi and T. Martin, lawyers)

Defendant: European Parliament

Form of order sought

The applicant claims that the Court should:

Annul the decision to make him liable for the amount of EUR 843,01, included in the breakdown of expenses No 244 from the settlements office;

Annul, where necessary, the decision of the Appointing Authority of 2 August 2017;

Order the Parliament to pay the costs.

Pleas in law and main arguments

In support of the action, the applicant raised an objection of illegality against the agreement concluded between the European Union and the Federation of Luxembourg Hospitals increasing by 15 % the medical expenses incurred by the members of the Joint Sickness Insurance Scheme (JSIS) in Luxembourg. That objection of illegality is based on two pleas in law.


First plea in law, alleging breach of the principle of non-discrimination on grounds of nationality and Articles 12 and 14 of the Protocol on privileges and immunities.


Second plea in law, alleging breach of the principle of sound financial management set out in Article 30 of Regulation No 966/2012 and Article 43 of the Joint Rules on Sickness Insurance for Officials of the European Union.
