Question for written answer E-001417-18
to the Commission
Rule 130
Pál Csáky (PPE)

 Subject:  Enforceability of compensation claims
 Answer in writing 
With regard to the Commission’s answer to Written Question E-007795/2017, I call for an accurate response to the following questions:
1. Whilst also taking into account the circumstances of the specific case concerned, does the Commission regard it as a systemic risk that a national court operating as a court of last instance applies — not entirely clearly — legislation which violates EC law, thereby seriously violating the EC law in question, and that said court does not initiate proceedings with the Court of Justice of the European Union?
2. Has the Commission investigated how the several thousand, mostly elderly and financially-disadvantaged, people involved might in practice enforce their rights derived from another Member State’s legal order in an action for compensation in the event of a failure to act on the part of the Commission?
3. Regarding the launch of infringement proceedings, when enforcing basic economic freedoms does the Commission make a distinction between those EU citizens alleging infringement as a result of compensation law, and those citizens who are deterred from exercising their right to free movement by the infringement or whose investments might fail as a result of the infringement?
