order the Council of the European Union to compensate the resulting damage to good character and reputation, amounting to EUR 50 000, plus statutory interest and any other sum that may be justified;

order the Council of the European Union to award the applicant the sum of EUR 500 for each month during which his name was entered on the lists at issue as compensation for the non-material damage resulting from the difficulties caused to his daily life and the damage to his health, to which should be added statutory interest, and any other sum that may be justified;

order the Council to pay the costs.

Pleas in law and main arguments

In support of the action, the applicant relies on two pleas in law.


First plea in law, alleging insufficient statement of reasons, constituting infringement of the principle of the rights of the defence and the right to effective judicial protection.


Second plea in law, alleging error of assessment, resulting from the infringement by the Council of its obligation to establish that the restrictive measures adopted are well founded.
