Juzgado de Primera Instancia

Parties to the main proceedings

Applicant: Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria, SA

Defendant: Fernando Quintano Ujeta, María Isabel Sánchez García

Operative part of the order

1)

Articles 6(1) and 7(1) of Council Directive 93/13/EEC of 5 April 1993 on unfair terms in consumer contracts must be interpreted as meaning that they do not preclude national provisions for moderating default interest under a mortgage contract, provided that those national provisions:

do not prejudice to the assessment by the national court hearing mortgage enforcement proceedings relating to that contract on the ‘unfairness’ of the default interest clause, and

do not prevent that court setting aside that clause should it conclude that the latter clause is ‘unfair’ within the meaning of Article 3(1) of Directive 93/13.

2)

Directive 93/13 must be interpreted as meaning that, where the national court has established the ‘unfairness’ within the meaning of Article 3(1) of Directive 93/13 of a clause in a contract between a consumer and a seller or a supplier, the fact that that clause has not been executed cannot, in itself, prevent the national court drawing the appropriate conclusions from the ‘unfair’ nature of that clause.

Articles 2 and 22 of Sixth Council Directive 77/388/EEC of 17 May 1977 on the harmonisation of the laws of the Member States relating to turnover taxes — Common system of value added tax: uniform basis of assessment, must be interpreted as precluding a national provision such as that of Article 9(17) of the Law No 289 of 27 December 2002 on provisions for the preparation of the annual and multiannual State budget (2003 Finance Law), which, having regard to an earthquake that struck the provinces of Catania, Ragusa and Syracuse, provides for a reduction, for the benefit of those persons affected, of 90 % of the value added tax which would otherwise be payable for the years of 1990 to 1992, inter alia by conferring an entitlement to reimbursement, in that proportion, of the sums already paid in respect of value added tax, in so far as that provision does not comply with the requirements of the principle of fiscal neutrality, and does not allow for the collection in full of value added tax payable in the territory of Italy.

Operative part of the order

The provisions of Council Directive 2006/112/EC of 28 November 2006 on the common system of value added tax, concerning the right to deduct value added tax, must be interpreted as precluding a tax authority of a Member State from considering that a supply of goods has not taken place, with the consequence that the purchaser is prevented from deducting the value added tax incurred at the time of the purchase, on the ground that the purchaser has not proved either the origin of the goods concerned or that his supplier was in possession of those goods, where that authority has not established that the purchaser was involved in value added tax evasion and knew or ought to have known that the transaction at issue was connected with such evasion.

Applicant:‘Koela-N’ EOOD

Defendant: Direktor na Direktsia ‘Obzhalvane i danachno-osiguritelna praktika’ Varna pri Tsentralno upravlenie na Natsionalnata agentsia za prihodite

Operative part of the order

1.

Article 14(1) of Council Directive 2006/112/EC of 28 November 2006 on the common system of value added tax must be interpreted as precluding the tax authorities of a Member State from finding that a supply of goods has not taken place, with the result that the value added tax paid at the time of acquiring those goods cannot be deducted by the buyer, on the ground that that person has not received the goods which it has purchased but has sent them directly to a third party to whom it has resold them, or on the ground that the buyer’s direct supplier has not received the goods which it has purchased but has sent them directly to that buyer.

2.

Neither the fact that a taxable person’s upstream suppliers in the supply chain have not cooperated with the tax authorities nor the fact that there has been no transhipment of the goods concerned constitutes, in itself, sufficient objective evidence for concluding that that taxable person knew, or ought to have known, that the transaction relied on as its basis for the right to deduct value added tax was connected with tax fraud. Nevertheless, those two facts constitute objective evidence which may be taken into account, in the context of an overall assessment of all the facts and circumstances of the case, in order to determine whether the taxable person knew, or ought to have known, that the transaction relied on as its basis for the right to deduct was connected with tax fraud.

Does Article 56 TFEU preclude application of contested Resolution No 397/13/CONS of the Autorità di garanzia delle Telecomunicazioni, and of the related provisions of national law, as interpreted along the lines proposed by that authority, which require the submission of complex ‘economic system information’ (which must be drawn up in accordance with Italian accounting standards) on the economic activities carried out in relation to Italian consumers, motivated by objectives of protecting competition but necessarily connected to the various and more limited institutional functions of that authority of safeguarding pluralism within the sector concerned, to operators which none the less do not come within the scope of the national legislation governing that sector (the Testo Unico dei Servizi di Media Audiovisivi e Radiofonici), and in particular, in the case under review here, to a national operator carrying out only services for its fellow subsidiary governed by Irish law and also, as regards the latter, to an operator not having its headquarters and not carrying on any business using employees within national territory; alternatively, does this constitute a measure restricting freedom to provide services within the European Union in breach of Article 56 TFEU?

Must Article 107 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union be interpreted as meaning that the obligation to purchase electrical energy produced in combination with the production of heat, as laid down in Article 9a(8) of the Law of 10 April 1997 on energy law, in the version in force in 2006, adopted on the basis of Article 1, point 13, of the Law of 4 March 2005 amending the Law on energy law and the Law on environmental protection law (Dz.U. 2005, No 62, item 552), constitutes State aid?

2.

In the event of an affirmative answer to Question 1, must Article 107 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union be interpreted as meaning that an energy undertaking treated as an emanation of a Member State which was obliged to fulfil the obligation classified as State aid may rely on infringement of that provision in proceedings before a national court?

3.

In the event of an affirmative answer to Questions 1 and 2, must Article 107 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union in conjunction with Article 4(3) of the Treaty on European Union be interpreted as meaning that the conflict of the obligation arising from national law with Article 107 TFEU rules out the possibility of imposing a financial penalty on an undertaking which has failed to fulfil that obligation?

Appeal brought on 27 July 2015 by Timab Industries and Cie financière et de participations Roullier (CFPR) against the judgment of the General Court (Eighth Chamber, Extended Composition) delivered on 20 May 2015 in Case T-456/10 Timab Industries and CFPR v Commission

(Case C-411/15 P)

(2015/C 320/27)

Language of the case: French

Parties

Appellants: Timab Industries and Cie financière et de participations Roullier (CFPR) (represented by: N. Lenoir, avocate)

Other party to the proceedings: European Commission

Form of order sought

The appellants claim that the Court should:

set aside the judgment delivered by the General Court on 20 May 2015 in Case T-456/10;

refer the case back to the General Court for the purpose of reducing the amount of the fine as appropriate;

as an incidental point, find that, by virtue of the unreasonable length of the judicial proceedings, the General Court infringed the right to a fair trial;

order the Commission to pay the costs in their entirety.

Grounds of appeal and main arguments

In support of their appeal, the appellants rely on five grounds of appeal.

In the first place, the General Court disregarded the rules relating to the burden of proof and infringed the rights of the defence by holding that it was for the appellants to prove, during the settlement procedure, that they had not participated in the cartel prior to 1993.

In the second place, the appellants accuse the General Court of having infringed the right not to self-incriminate and the rights of the defence. By not verifying whether the Commission was obliged to provide evidence to support its classifying the appellants’ statements as ‘admissions’, which had a significant effect on the decision regarding the amount of the fine, the General Court misconstrued its unlimited jurisdiction.

In the third place, the General Court misconstrued the scope of its unlimited jurisdiction by regarding as ‘new information’ the acknowledgement by the Commission, following the appellants’ withdrawal from the settlement procedure, that the appellants had not participated in the cartel between 1978 and 1992 in order to justify ordering the payment of a significantly larger fine for an infringement which had taken place over a considerably shorter period.

In the fourth place, the General Court misconstrued its unlimited jurisdiction, vitiated its judgment with contradictory reasoning, erred in law in its application of the settlement procedure and failed to observe the principles of legitimate expectations and equal treatment by endorsing the withdrawal of almost all the reductions for cooperation granted during the settlement procedure, which the appellants could not reasonably have anticipated occurring to such an extent.

In the fifth place, the appellants accuse the General Court of having misconstrued its unlimited jurisdiction and of having failed to observe the principle of equal treatment and the principle that penalties should be tailored to the individual.

As an incidental point, the appellants ask the Court to find that — given the unreasonable length of the proceedings — the General Court disregarded the right to a fair trial, in breach of the second paragraph of Article 47 of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union and Article 6(1) of the European Convention on Human Rights.

Is the test in Foster and Others v British Gas plc (Case C-188/89) as set out at para. 20 on the question of what is an emanation of a member state to be read on the basis that the elements of the test are to be applied

(a)

conjunctively, or

(b)

disjunctively?

2.

To the extent that separate matters referred to in Foster and Others v British Gas plc (Case C-188/89) may, alternatively, be considered to be factors which should properly be taken into account in reaching an overall assessment, is there a fundamental principle underlying the separate factors identified in that decision which a court should apply in reasoning an assessment as to whether a specified body is an emanation of the State?

3.

Is it sufficient that a broad measure of responsibility has been transferred to a body by a member state for the ostensible purpose of meeting obligations under European law for that body to be an emanation of the member state or is it necessary, in addition, that such a body additionally have (a) special powers or (b) operate under direct control or supervision of the member state?

Does Article 15 of Regulation 2201/2003 (1) apply to public law care applications by a local authority in a member state, when if the Court of another member state assumes jurisdiction, it will necessitate the commencement of separate proceedings by a different body pursuant to a different legal code and possibly, if not probably, relating to different factual circumstances?

2.

If so, to what extent, if any, should a court consider the likely impact of any request under Article 15 if accepted, upon the right of freedom of movement of the individuals affected?

3.

If the ‘best interests of the child’ in Article 15.1 of Regulation 2201/2003 refers only to the decision as to forum, what factors may a court consider under this heading, which have not already been considered in determining whether another court is ‘better placed’?

4.

May a court for the purposes of Article 15 of Regulation 2201/2003 have regard to the substantive law, procedural provisions, or practice of the courts of the relevant member state?

5.

To what extent should a national court, in considering Article 15 of Regulation 2201/2003, have regard to the specific circumstances of the case, including the desire of a mother to move beyond the reach of the social services of her home state, and thereafter give birth to her child in another jurisdiction with a social services system she considers more favourable?

(ii)

If it does apply, is such a person entitled to export the benefit by virtue of either article 9 or article 22?

Action brought on 29 May 2015 — Esso Raffinage v ECHA

(Case T-283/15)

(2015/C 320/49)

Language of the case: English

Parties

Applicant: Esso Raffinage (Courbevoie, France) (represented by: M. Navin-Jones, Solicitor)

Defendant: European Chemicals Agency (ECHA)

Form of order sought

The applicant claims that the Court should:

declare the application as admissible and well-founded;

annul the decision of 1 April 2015 adopted by the European Chemicals Agency (‘ECHA’) with respect to Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 concerning the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (‘REACH’) establishing a European Chemicals Agency, amending Directive 1999/45/EC and repealing Council Regulation (EEC) No 793/93 and Commission Regulation (EC) No 1488/94 as well as Council Directive 76/769/EEC and Commission Directives 91/155/EEC, 93/67/EEC, 93/105/EC and 2000/21/EC (OJ L 396, p. 1), being a letter entitled “Statement of Non-Compliance following a Dossier Evaluation Decision under Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 (‘SONC’) and its attachment (reference number CCH-C-0000005770-74-01/F);

order that the case be referred back to the ECHA Executive Director with a direction that any new ECHA decision take into account the reasons for annulment stipulated in the General Court Judgment and all relevant, up-to-date information;

order ECHA to pay the costs incurred by the applicant regarding these proceedings; and

take other or further measures as justice may require.

Pleas in law and main arguments

In support of the action, the applicant relies on a number of pleas in law, including the following:

1.

First plea in law, alleging ultra vires act, breach of institutional balance etc.

The applicant puts forward that there is no legal authority or legal basis for ECHA to establish, compile, adopt and/or send so-called Statements of Non-Compliance and that by having compiled, adopted and sent a SONC in this case, ECHA has (i) acted outside the limit of its discretionary and/or executive powers (ultra vires act); (2) acted in breach of the legal principle and requirement of institutional balance of power; (3) acted in breach of the legal principle and requirement of good administration; (4) acted in breach of the legal principle of good public governance; and/or (5) acted in breach of Article 41 of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union.

2.

Second plea in law, alleging, in the alternative, breach of Article 42 REACH.

The applicant submits that to the extent ECHA may seek to rely upon Article 42(1) REACH as legal authority and/or the legal basis for the Contested Decision, Article 42(1) REACH does not provide ECHA any legal authority or basis for adopting the contested decision and that by adopting the contested decision ECHA has acted in breach of Article 42(1) REACH. The applicant submits that, in this case, ECHA has not adopted the appropriate decision as required by Article 42(1) REACH. The applicant submits that ECHA has consistently interpreted Article 42(1) REACH as not authorizing the issuance of a Statement of Non-Compliance.

3.

Third plea in law, alleging a breach of the right to be heard.

The applicant puts forward that the contested decision has been adopted in breach of the EU legal principles of the right to be heard, the right to respond and to reply, the right of defence, the right to notice, and the right to good administration. The applicant submits that as a direct consequence of the breach of these procedural and process rights, the contested decision is voidable and void. That is: ECHA had not acted in breach of the applicant’s procedural and process rights, the applicant submits that the outcome of the process and the procedure would have materially differed.

4.

Fourth plea in law, alleging breach of the principle of proportionality.

The applicant submits that the contested decision was inconsistent with, and in breach of, the EU legal principle of proportionality. The applicant submits that the contested decision is not appropriate or necessary, did not constitute the least onerous measure and that the disadvantages caused were disproportionate to the aims pursued.

5.

Fifth plea in law, alleging an error in interpretation of data requirements under REACH.

The applicant submits that ECHA has committed an error in interpreting the information requirements regarding Annex X, section 8.7.2. as there is in fact no de facto requirement to conduct a pre-natal developmental toxicity study on a second species. The applicant therefore submits that ECHA has, by adopting the contested decision, acted without legal basis and outside the limits of its discretionary powers.

Action brought on 11 August 2015 — Asia Leader International (Cambodia) v Commission

(Case T-462/15)

(2015/C 320/67)

Language of the case: English

Parties

Applicant: Asia Leader International (Cambodia) Co. Ltd (Tai Seng SEZ, Cambodia) (represented by: R. MacLean, Solicitor, and A. Bochon, lawyer)

Defendant: European Commission

Form of order sought

The applicant claims that the Court should:

declare the application admissible;

annul Articles 1(1) and 1(3) of the Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2015/776 of 18 May 2015 extending the definitive anti-dumping duty imposed by Council Regulation (EU) No 502/2013 on imports of bicycles originating in the People's Republic of China to imports of bicycles consigned from Cambodia, Pakistan and the Philippines, whether declared as originating in Cambodia, Pakistan and the Philippines or not, to the extent that it concerns the applicant (OJ L 122/4);

order the Commission to pay the applicant’s legal costs and expenses incurred, as well as to bear its own costs; and

order any interveners in these proceedings to pay the applicant’s legal costs and expenses incurred for such intervention, as well as to bear their own legal costs.

Pleas in law and main arguments

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

1.

First plea in law, alleging an infringement of Article 13 (1) of Council Regulation (EC) 1225/2009 of 30th November 2009 (Codified Version) on Protection Against Dumped Imports from Countries not Members of the European Community caused by manifest error of assessment in law and fact on the Commission’s part in relation to the existence of circumvention and the nature of the facts available.

The applicant puts forward that the Commission has no evidence in its hands to support any finding that the frames in question originate in China.

The applicant alleges that on the contrary, all evidence submitted by the applicant supports that the bicycle frames in question originate in Vietnam.

Finally, according to the applicant, the Commission does not have the power neither on the basis of the Council Regulation (EC) 1225/2009 nor on the basis of the case law of the Court to simply conclude, by default, that the applicant was engaged in the transhipment of the product concerned from China.

2.

Second plea in law, alleging an infringement of Article 13(2) of Council Regulation (EC) 1225/2009 of 30th November 2009 (Codified Version) on Protection Against Dumped Imports from Countries not Members of the European Community caused by manifest error of assessment in law and fact on the Commission’s part in relation to the existence of assembly operations on the part of the applicant and breach of the duty of care.

The applicant puts forward that the Commission was required to use the actual information and data provided by the applicant as the basis for assessing its situation. According to the applicant, the use of the third-party benchmarks for this purpose is therefore not permitted where a reasonable and justifiable explanation is provided for actual data.

The applicant further puts forward that the Commission made a further infringement of the obligation to correctly appraise the production costs of the applicant when it reclassified the parts used to the make the applicant’s first sale to the European Union market as originating in China, though they originated in Vietnam. In doing so, the Commission allegedly also breached its duty of care.

Also, so the applicant claims, the Commission miscalculated the correct energy and rental costs by incorrectly using different factors in allocating these respective costs. The same miscalculation allegedly occurred when the Commission calculated that the company was operating at 13 % of its production capacity during the relevant period.

Finally, according to the applicant, the Commission declined to accept any depreciation costs for the fixed assets, though the applicant had furnished evidence that the company’s shareholder was reimbursed by the applicant.

3.

Third plea in law, alleging a failure by the Commission to properly give due weight to information and data submitted by the Applicant in response to final disclosure contrary to Article 18(3) of Council Regulation (EC) 1225/2009 of 30th November 2009 (Codified Version) on Protection Against Dumped Imports from Countries not Members of the European Community.

The applicant puts forward that the Commission’s complete discard of all the additional information provided by the applicant demonstrates that this information was not given the due weight it should have received.

According to the applicant, the additional information and evidence provided by the applicant to dispute the Commission’s finding of transhipment came from several different independent sources.

Finally, so the applicant claims, although it did not have any evidence or indication that the frames originated in China, the Commission should have concluded that the weight of evidence pointed in the direction of the Vietnamese origin of the frames.
