C 300/25


Action brought on 12 July 2017 — European Commission v French Republic

(Case C-420/17)

(2017/C 300/29)

Language of the case: French

Parties

Applicant: European Commission (represented by: O. Beynet and C. Hermes, acting as Agents)

Defendant: French Republic

Form of order sought

The applicant claims that the Court should:

declare that, by failing to take all the necessary measures to establish a general system of protection for the ortolan bunting in Landes, the French Republic has failed to fulfil its obligations under Article 5 of Directive 2009/147/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 30 November 2009 on the conservation of wild birds;

order the French Republic to pay the costs.

Pleas in law and main arguments

The Commission considers that France has never taken the necessary coherent and coordinated protective measures to establish a system of protection for the ortolan bunting, and has thus failed to fulfil its obligations under Directive 2009/147/EC. (1)
